November 21, 2019
Join us as photographer, EcoHealth researcher, and National Geographic Explorer Gemina Garland-Lewis shares the untold stories of Azorean whalers. Her photography focuses on the lives and work of former whalers, the economic transition from whaling to whale watching, and the younger generation’s connection to the whaleboat.
Gemina Garland-Lewis is a Seattle-based photographer with experience across six continents in more than 30 countries. Both her photography and research explore the myriad connections between humans, animals, and their shared environments. In 2012, she began her work as a National Geographic Young Explorer Grantee to document the images and stories of former Azorean whalers. She is currently writing a book about her work in the Azores and beginning to document the younger generation’s connection to the whaleboats for sport. Her photography and writing have been featured by National Geographic Adventure, National Geographic News, The Nature Conservancy, and REI, among others.
