Reaching Home
Thursday, February 17, 2011

Pulitzer Prize finalist Natalie Fobes has shot assignments for National Geographic, Smithsonian, Audubon and other major magazines. She was given the nickname "Salmon Lady" after her 10-year project photographing and writing about Pacific salmon and cultures associated with the species. In addition to three coffee table books, her work can be found in many public, private and corporate collections. Her images of the Exxon Valdez oil spill are iconic.

Fobes has received many grants and commissions to tell stories that trace the intersection of cultures and the environment. She has braved the Siberian winter with the Chukchi reindeer herders and has explored a cloud forest in Guatemala. Fobes' current project looks at how China's one-child policy impacts both that country as well as the United States. In her lecture, Fobes will share stories about the land, creatures and cultures that make up our world.

Fobes teaches photography at Seattle Central Creative Academy and most recently presented for Canon at the WPPI Conference. Lynda.com profiled Fobes in a one-hour documentary as part of its "Creative Inspiration" series and will publish her course on photography in Spring 2011.

Fobes is one of the founders of Blue Earth Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping photographers shoot documentary stories about the environment, endangered cultures and social issues.
