Michael Nichols: "A Life in the Wild"


Yesterday I also saw a 15 minute short film by MichaelNichols, “A Life in the Wild”, an autobiographical sketch of the National Geographic wildlife photographer and his work.  The film was part of an exhibition on his work. 

There was a progression of subject matter, with the most impressive for my dime being the drone photography of a pride of lions, who didn’t object to the foreign object hovering over them, as it didn’t harm them.


There was also a sequence with chimpanzees, which fits into to the NatGeo feature “Jane” by Brett Morgen and Jane Goodall 
  
There was some pretty impressive work with tree climbers on the sequoias in California.
