National Geographic explorer Chris Rainier is an artist, social photographer, documenter, and photojournalist, globally respected for his work with endangered cultures worldwide. He calls himself a “serial traveler, gypsy, and photographer” and possesses unrivaled first-hand knowledge of world indigenous cultures. He describes his life experiences, as you might expect, in a beautifully visual way.
Chris's new book, Sacred, includes photos compiled from his decades of exploration and his interactions with the planet’s indigenous peoples. He co-founded The Cultural Sanctuaries Foundation, which campaigns with the philosophy, ‘Indigenous peoples are the best guardians of the earth's biodiversity. If we protect indigenous cultures, we protect the planet. We must protect the protectors.’
