I have been fortunate enough to have been awarded a Public Diplomacy grant for an upcoming exhibition by the US Embassy in New Zealand. This will be a photography exhibition for 15 photographs of a snowbound Yosemite National Park in January 2017. I also proposed a short public lecture associated with the event, drawing attention to the everyday use of photography many of us in engage with using our smartphones or similar devices, and ways in which this can help us to engage with our natural environment to promote physical and mental wellbeing, including my own subjective experience of this. It's likely that this exhibition will take place in June-July this year. Thanks very much to the Embassy for seeing the value in my proposition, and I look forward to the exhibition. I'll be announcing the exact dates soon - I'm really looking forward to it.
