National Geographic Photo Ark

Joel Sartore


11 - 29 Jul 2024

The United States Embassy is proud to present the National Geographic Photo Ark exhibition, showcasing the captivating and visually striking work of renowned National Geographic photographer and Explorer, Joel Sartore. The exhibition, which will be held at Living Hall, 3rd Floor, Siam Paragon, from July 11 to 29, 2024, is part of the U.S. Embassy’s campaign to highlight U.S.-Thai collaboration on wildlife conservation efforts.

Founded by Sartore in 2006, the National Geographic Photo Ark is an ambitious project dedicated to documenting every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries. The project aims to inspire people to care for and protect these animals for future generations. The National Geographic Photo Ark is a visually powerful and compelling initiative that seeks to photograph endangered species before it’s too late. In addition to creating an archival record for posterity, this project serves as a hopeful platform for conservation and highlights the efforts of individuals and organizations working to preserve species worldwide.

One Man’s Quest to Document the World’s Animals

The “One Man’s Quest to Document the World’s Animals” exhibition will feature some of Sartore’s most captivating images, offering visitors a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with animals from the National Geographic Photo Ark, including some that are endemic to Thailand and Southeast Asia. The exhibition will educate visitors about the project, its mission, and conservation efforts while engaging audiences of all ages through free educational materials and activities.

The Photo Ark is showing for the first time in Thailand. This project is managed by creative director and Thailand’s celebrated contemporary photographer, Tom Potisit.
