The C. Parker Gallery Launches Nature Conservation Exhibition Featuring Paul Nicklen, Cristina Mittermeier


The C. Parker Gallery announced a new exhibition, Double Exposure: Two Photographers, One Mission, showcasing the work of a couple of the world’s leading wildlife and conservation photographers: Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier.

The gallery is located in Greenwich, Connecticut, making it a short, 40-minute train ride from the heart of Manhattan.

Nicklen has been documenting our planet for over 20 years and was the youngest inductee in the International Photography Hall of Fame in 2019. His work captures the wonder and often plight of the natural world and is collected by celebrities and royalty, according to the artist himself:

“I believe that art, especially photography, has the power to connect people to stories with such deep emotion, that their perspective of the world can change…My work exists at the  intersection of art, science, and conservation as a way to showcase the beauty that exists in nature.”

Mittermeier is an award-winning photographer and graduate of the Fine Art Photography program at the Corcoran College for the Arts in Washington, DC. Amongst her many achievements is being named one of National Geographic’s “Adventurers of the Year” in 2018 and the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year. Discussing her work, Mittermeier said:

“Images can help us understand the urgency to protect wild places that so many of us realize is of the utmost importance. My work is about building a greater awareness of the responsibility of what it means to be human.”

Fred Camillo, the Town of Greenwich’s First Selectman, stated:

“The Town of Greenwich is honored to host this exhibition at the C. Parker Gallery, featuring the photographs of Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier, two of the most globally celebrated photographers of our generation. These artists/conservation champions have created some of the most iconic wildlife images of our modern-day culture, and are internationally acclaimed for harnessing the majestic beauty of their images to inspire change on our planet.”
