Day one of our PIX 2015 re:FRAME speaker lineup wrapped up with a moving keynote presentation from Cristina Mittermeier. Formerly a marine biologist, Mittermeier is a founder and former president of the International League of Conservation Photographers.

She's been recognized as one of the World's 40 Most Influential Outdoor Photographers, and while she proclaims her love for photographing wild animals, she's found her calling documenting people - indigenous societies especially. Over a 25+ year career that has taken her to over 100 countries, her photos capture the places where nature and people come into contact. Her talk gives the stories behind some of her images, an exploration of far flung places across the globe, and like all of her work, asks the viewer to think about what he or she can do to help preserve it all. You can see the full video here, along with a 60-second short video introduction to her work.
