Pulitzer-prize winning environmental photographer Jack Dykinga will recount his experiences photographing the majesty and wonder of the Grand Canyon during a free public lecture at 7 p.m. May 14, in Cline Library Assembly Hall.

The former photojournalism for theChicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times has been photographing for Arizona Highways magazine for more than 25 years, and in the process discovered the amazing diversity of Arizona’s landscapes.

Dykinga’s work reflects the merging of a photojournalistic, documentary approach with large-format landscape photography, focusing on environmental issues in the United States and Mexico.

The lecture is part of the continuing Canyon Country Community Lecture Series, which explores the rich interpretive themes of Grand Canyon National Park and the region. Information is online.
