* LIFE LIVES HERE, curated by Cristina Mittermeier
"Life Lives Here... and nowhere else in the universe. These projections by Fellows of the International League of Conservation Photographers will shine a light on some of our planet's most beautiful and precious natural resources... and the threats facing them. We hope they will help connect-the-dots between cause and consequence on all our environmental decisions, and lead us to understand how every action has an effect on our planet, and all life on it."
