Congressional Briefing and Exhibit on Borderlands

Photographers, Environmentalists, Human Rights Activists Join Forces to Highlight Impacts of Border Wall

Ian Shive’s images will be part of a group effort by the International League of Conservation Photographers and other non-profits to lobby U.S. Congress to halt construction of the border fence along the US/Mexico border. The legislation being reintroduced is the Border Security and Responsibility Act of 2009 by rep. Raul Grijalva (Tuscon, AZ). Ian’s photos appear in a short documentary  being presented at a Congressional briefing on Monday, April 27th and four of his images will be part of a group exhibit on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, April 29th. All are invited to attend the exhibit during the day until 5:30pm. Special thanks to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for production of the film.

The National Parks: Our American Landscape

I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you all. On August 1, 2009, my first major book – a 224-page, hardcover coffee table book – will hit major bookstores nationwide, titled The National Parks: Our American Landscape. It is being published by Earth Aware Editions based in San Rafael, California. 

As many of you who know me – our National Parks have long been an inspiration to my photography. I’ve spent the last 4-years photographing on assignment or just meandering through the woods documenting everything from the arctic slopes of Mt. McKinley in Alaska to the underwater world of Channel Islands National Park here in my backyard in California.  This will truly be an amazing milestone for me.
