Award-Winning Photographer’s Lecture to be Simulcast at UNO
Omaha - Michael Forsberg, a nationally-recognized photographer and Nebraska native, will present a lecture titled “Pulse of the Plains: A Photographer’s Journey Connecting Water, Wildlife and Landscape” on Dec. 6. The event will be simulcast in the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) Commons (132 CPACS) at 7 p.m.
Forsberg’s lecture is the second program in the 2011-12 E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues focusing on water and global security. The lecture will be broadcast from the Lied Center for Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Forsberg’s work has appeared in Audubon, National Geographic, National Wildlife, Natural History and NEBRASKAland in addition to participating regularly in Pictures of the Year and Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions.
In 2001, Forsberg’s image of a Nebraska tall grass prairie was selected to be an international postage stamp and in 2004, he received a Conservation Education Award from The Wildlife Society.
The simulcasts, sponsored by the Nebraska Humanities Council and several other local college or universities, allow more Nebraskans to have the opportunity to benefit from outstanding speakers and community discussion. Details about the E.N. Thompson Forum are available at http://enthompson.unl.edu.
