Friends of Wisdom Prairie Annual Meeting & Dinner Lecture

November 7, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$40

Join the Friends of Wisdom Prairie for their Annual Meeting and Dinner Lecture by photojournalist Michael Kienitz.

Iceland’s Vanishing Beauty 
Michael Kienitz, an award winning photojournalist,  has been visiting Iceland for several years, recording, through photographs, the rapidly disappearing glaciers.  He uses “old timers” from Iceland to guide him into some very out of the way places.  The images are haunting and amazing and clear physical evidence of climate change.

 

Speaker:

Michael Kienitz has been a photographer for more than 40 years. His traditional photography has appeared in Life, Time and Newsweek, and other major publications worldwide, his work has been exhibited in the United States and Europe. He was an instructor of photojournalism in the School of Journalism at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and is now an electronic imaging instructor in the Department of Professional Development. His work has been disseminated world wide by various photo agencies including Contact Press Images, Black Star, Picture Group and Mercury Pictures.

Michael is very interested in the environment in general.  He has given generously of his time and talent to Holy Wisdom Monastery, recording progress of our ecological restorations and land management in action, through photos and video.
