Wildlife photographer Florian Schulz to appear at U-M

By Staff

Florian Schulz, the professional wildlife photographer behind the book "To The Arctic," will visit the University of Michigan to give a multimedia presentation of his work on Thursday, February 7. The presentation will take place at 5:10 p.m. in the Dana Building (440 Church St. in Ann Arbor), room 1040, and will include Schulz’s photos, stories, and video from the Arctic. Schulz’s presentation is free and open to the public.

While in Ann Arbor, Schulz will also present workshops to students at the University of Michigan, as one of four media professionals hosted by the university’s Program in the Environment (PitE). Through hands-on exercises and projects, students in these workshops will bring environmental issues to life in ways not achieved in a classroom or lab.

“I have always been driven by a tremendous passion for wild places,” Schulz once said of his work in conservation photography. “A landscape free of human imprint speaks to me of something ancient, something real.”

Schulz’s presentation is sponsored by the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment (SNRE), and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Will the talk be recorded so that people who can't attend can watch it later?

This is cool stuff. It would be neat to have Cory Trepanier come to Ann Arbor... He did some amazing work as he travelled around the Canadian Arctic
