(CHICAGO, IL) – The Auditorium Theatre’s 2019-20 National Geographic Live Series continues on January 26, 2020 with “On the Trail of Big Cats,” featuring National Geographic wildlife photographer Steve Winter.
From trekking the Himalyas in search of snow leopards and tracking the elusive jaguar through Latin American jungles to pursuing the American cougar throughout the Hollywood Hills, Winter has ventured far and wide to come face to face with his subjects. In “On the Trail of Big Cats,” Winter shares his stories about traveling the world to photograph these big cats and educates audiences on the importance of protecting these magnificent creatures.
“We are excited to continue our National Geographic Live Series in 2020 with a focus on wildlife and the conservation efforts of National Geographic explorers,” says Rich Regan, Auditorium Theatre CEO. “We look forward to hearing Steve Winter share some of his incredible stories with our audience while showcasing his award-winning photos.”
Winter has been a National Geographic photographer since 1991. He has been named the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and BBC Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year and is the two-time winner of Picture of the Year International’s Global Vision Award. He also received first prize in the nature story category from World Press Photo in 2008 and 2014. He lectures globally on photography and conservation issues and has appeared on CBS Nightly News, 60 Minutes, NPR, BBC, and CNN. In November 2013, National Geographic published Winter’s photography book Tigers Forever: Saving the World’s Most Endangered Cat.
