Conservation Journal by Jason Houston

January 18th, 2014, photographer Jason Houston presents an in-depth understanding of "Conservation Journal" in a slideshow and talk on his approach featuring additional images and stories from over 10 years of doing cause driven photography.

From fisheries management to deforestation, from endangered species protection to ethical meat production, Houston’s images help make exotic, complex, and sometimes controversial stories personal and accessible to a broader audience at his solo show on view at Fovea Exhibitions, in Beacon, NY.

His photographs underscore the point that conservation work cannot simply be about preserving plants and animals, but must also improve the lives of the people who are the stewards of these natural resources. The show includes images from conservation projects around the world, including Borneo, Mexico, Seychelles, Nicaragua, Kenya, Belize, Ecuador, Peru, and the United States.

Jason Houston is a fellow of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Based in Boulder, he concentrates on long-term projects. His goal in documenting environmental issues is not merely to educate, or document success, but to provoke conversations about the underlying dynamics of conservation work. Mr. Houston is widely published in the national press, he exhibits and lectures across the country, and he teaches photography and documentary workshops privately and for various national organizations.

Thank you to the Volunteer team of Fovea and especially to J.P. Pacquing, who filmed this event.
