Michael Forsberg whose stunning photographs of some of America’s last untamed prairies grace the pages of his new book Great Plains: America’s Lingering Wild recently delivered a fascinating lecture on his work and the importance of conservation efforts on the great plains at the California Academy of the Sciences. FORA.TV is currently hosting video of the entire lecture, which features images from Forsberg’s book including some behind the scenes shots of the photographer in action, demonstrating the painstaking lengths to which the author went to photograph the lingering wild that still survives in America’s heartland.
