Humanitarian Photographer Lisa Kristine Guest on College's TV Show

From St. Norbert College, March 28, 2016
by Mike Counter, mike.counter@snc.edu, 920-403-3089

Acclaimed humanitarian photographer Lisa Kristine will be the guest on the April "Conversations from St. Norbert College" television show hosted by Kevin Quinn, founding dean of the Donald J. Schneider School of Business & Economics at St. Norbert. The two will discuss her photography and what inspires it.

Kristine has documented the lives of indigenous cultures in more than 100 countries on six continents. She has gained broad recognition for her collaboration with the non-governmental organization Free the Slaves, with whom she published a book of photography entitled "Slavery" in 2010.

Kristine exhibited her work at the 2009 Vancouver Peace Summit, attended by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other Nobel laureates. The Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Queen Mother of Bhutan and Amnesty International have all endorsed her work. In December 2014 she was invited to the Vatican to join Pope Francis and 25 of the world's faith leaders, who pledged to eradicate slavery worldwide by 2020.

Kristine has published five books and has been the subject of four documentaries. The 2014 film "SOLD," directed by Jeffrey Brown and produced by Emma Thompson, includes a character inspired by Kristine and played by Gillian Anderson.

New "Conversations" shows appear the first Friday of each month. The series airs on TWCT (Time Warner Cable Television) Channel 4 in Green Bay, Howard/Suamico and Seymour; Channel 4 in the Fox Cities; Channel 2 in Neenah/Menasha; and on NET cable Channel 46 in Pulaski.
