One of the most influential female photographers in the world, Cristina Mittermeier, has been hailed as one of the most important outdoor photographers of her generation. Cristina learned the concept of responsible earth stewardship from her indigenous nanny as a child growing up in Mexico, and she explores that calling through the ways of life of four communities and their individual relationships with water. 

During her time with the Kayapó people in the Amazon, she documented a society that relied on their local waterway to survive—and found their way of life threatened by a massive new dam. In British Columbia, she found First Nations protecting their sacred headwaters, and in Hawaii, a new community of indigenous peoples seeking to reclaim their connection to the sea. She learned that one concept bound these three disparate communities together: “Enoughness,” or taking only that which you need.

VIP: includes a premium, Price Level 1 seat and a photo opportunity with Cristina Mittermeier.
