Exploring Legends Interview featuring David Doubilet FN'01

Acclaimed photographer David Doubilet FN'01 is an Explorers Club Lowell Thomas Award winner. By age 12, he was making pictures underwater using a Brownie Hawkeye camera stuffed into a rubber anesthesiologist bag. The photos were barely recognizable, but since then David has mastered the techniques of working with water and light to become one of the world’s most celebrated underwater photographers.

Come hear interviewer Jim Clash FR’99 probe David about his amazing work for National Geographic Magazine (he has done over 60 stories since his first assignment in 1971); David's invention of the split lens camera, which allows him to take pictures above and below water simultaneously; and what David sees as the biggest challenges and opportunities going forward for underwater photographers.

As is customary, Clash will open questions to audience members after the interview.
