TV presenter, naturalist, conservationist, award winning photographer and author Chris Packham’s new show is designed for impact.
Challenging conventional ideas about where beauty is found, what good photography and art is and what it is for. Everyone is tempted by glamour, the big, the brash and the beautiful. But Chris champions the underdog and pushes back at familiarity breeding contempt – for him humble everyday creatures are just as alluring.
He likes to ‘make something out of other people’s nothing’ when it comes to photography and loves the challenge of finding beauty in ugly places. And when he travels to some of the world’s wildlife hotspots he wants to see them in a new way, to put some art into his photos. At the core of all his work is conservation so expect tales from the frontline and the full-frontal truth about how we get it wrong and get it right. Funny, inspiring, irreverent and packed with information it’s not a lecture, it’s a romp through the wild mind of Chris Packham.
Chris is recognised for his outstanding work in television broadcasting including the award winning documentary ‘Chris Packham: Asperger’s and Me’, raising awareness of living with autism and Asperger’s, the popular BBC Springwatch series, and ‘Chris Packham: In search of The Lost Girl’, highlighting the impact the use of palm oil by the Western world is having on our rainforests. Chris’s book “Fingers in the Sparkle Jar” was voted the UK’s favourite nature book in a 2018 poll carried out by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
