Please join us for the Opening Reception of the 9th Annual Environmental Photography Exhibit at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival. We will award the Best of Show and there will be a Keynote Presentation titles “Pretty Pictures Are Just Not Enough” by Kerry Koepping, Director of Artic Arts Project!

Kerry Koepping is an award winning international photographer and communicator with a passion for the Arctic and the ever-changing environment. He is the Director of the Arctic Arts Project and is a research Affiliate with The Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado (INSTAAR). His work has been published in distinguished media channels throughout the world including: the Smithsonian, National Center For Atmospheric Research, ECO, SwissCom , MSN.com, Bing, ABC, Associated Press, The National Academy of Science (PNAS) and the U. S. Arctic Research Commission.  Kerry has also been a speaker/presenter at numerous international forums and conferences on climate change; most recently at the Arctic Circle Assembly in Reykjavik, Iceland; The Visual Climate Change Forum at The University of Indonesia, Jakarta, and The American Renewable Energy Conference in Aspen Colorado.


His unique vision for the Arctic Arts Project evolved while shooting in Denali, Alaska where he captured rarely seen permafrost polygon hummock imagery that evoked a passionate global response from naturalists, scientists and artists.
As an environmental photographer, Kerry’s goal is to inspire global visual literacy.
Through a diverse and profound folio of photographic work, Kerry, and The Arctic Arts team, seeks to develop visual knowledge and an understanding of the natural, scientific and anthropogenic changes occurring in the Arctic.
