Wildlife photographer C.C. Lockwood has lived and worked in fragile ecosystems whose preservation shapes his artistry. Through words and images, he has captured the unique sense of space in wild places as diverse as Louisiana swampland and the rugged back country of the American West. His work has earned him international acclaim as an environmental artist, including the Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Award for conservation photography. Lockwood’s work continues to reflect changes and perils in the natural world. His eleventh book, “Marsh Mission,” is part of a years-long effort by Lockwood to bring attention to the crisis of vanishing Gulf Coast wetlands. His newest book, “Louisiana Wild, The Lands Protected and Restored by The Nature Conservancy,” portrays the good work this organization is doing on over 280,000 acres of land in our state.
During this evening's events, the annual Lynda Carlberg Award will also be presented to Beth Vandersteen, Director of the West Baton Rouge Parish Library system.
