Johns will discuss the future of National Geographic magazine and how it has the opportunity to tell more immersive and powerful stories than ever before in its 125 year history.  Evolving technology provides story-telling tools only dreamt of a few years ago.  The ability to capture high quality images with still photography and high definition video, while also recording audio, helps share experiences in new and innovative ways. 

This Iris Nights lecture will take place in the Digital Gallery of the Annenberg Space for Photography. Additional tickets will be available to view the lecture streamed live in Skylight Studio.
