As part of our work to show the impact of humanity on this exquisite planet, each month we'll showcase compelling photography by women from around the world to inspire conversations that move people into action. The images you'll find here are part of our commitment to truth-telling about the impacts of humans on our destabilizing planet... to bring about a kinder, wiser, more balanced civilization.
Sometimes beautiful, sometimes awful and unflinching, we will feature our colleagues' eyes on the world as it is, and on the world that was and should be: by those passionate, brave and determined to protect wildlife, domesticated species, and the ecosystems which support us all. Our themes: nature. wild creatures. biodiversity. landscapes. Anthropocene.
Julie Steelman is an award-winning photographer who hopes that her images soothe the soul of viewers, to feel the essence of nature’s glory. When not traveling, she empowers women to make savvy and values-based investment decisions. She spends the rest of her time rehabbing marine mammals, working with a whale disentanglement team, and using photography to support conservation and philanthropic efforts. Julie’s video clips have been used in a Discovery Channel Shark Week episode, and multiple photos have been published in science and research books. Her luxury photography book, Wild Sacred Beauty was published in 2021.
