Theron Humphrey & Maddie

In 2011, Theron Humphrey hit the road to cross America to celebrate life. He photographed one person a day, every day, for an entire year. His dog Maddie the Coonhound joined him on his little adventure and they’ve been best friends ever since. The project, This Wild Idea, was recently named National Geographic’s Travel Project of the Year. In this lecture, Humphrey will discuss his adventure, touching upon his inspiration and its ultimate realization.

Followed by a Q&A.
