PIX 2015: Connecting kids with nature through photography
We've already introduced you to David FitzSimmons, so the topic of his PIX 2015 talk shouldn't be a big surprise. The author of three photography-based children's books about creatures of the natural world spoke on the importance of introducing children to the natural world. Built environments are the settings of more and more children's books lately, and kids living in urban areas often grow up without the exposure to the natural world that previous generations have had.
His photo books bring the vibrant world of creatures big and small right into their laps, and in his talk he discusses his deliberate choice in style, the beginning of his project and its evolution into a book series. Find out how he grew his brand and how his photography inspires young minds all over the world.
