About the Event

Immerse yourself in unseen worlds with scientist and photographer Jennifer Hayes and underwater photographer David Doubilet. These globetrotting partners in work and life have produced stories together about every topic under the sea, from endangered coral reefs to what lies below polar ice. Known as the “Audubon of the Sea,” David’s photography brilliantly captures life above and below the water’s surface. Onstage, these two master storytellers combine decades of knowledge, passion, and experience into a remarkable visual odyssey that tells the unique story of our ocean like never before.
