At Contiki, we’re all about women who go further. So, for this International Women’s Day – for which the theme is #Breakingthebias – we had a chat with the renowned National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale, a woman who pushes boundaries and brings the world’s most urgent stories to life through her photography and filmmaking.
Ami has documented war zones and helped to tell some incredible wildlife stories, including efforts to save the white rhino and reintroduce pandas into the wild. Given the amazing adventures she’s had throughout her career, we had just one question for Ami: what tips would you give to your younger self when travelling for the first time?
And, despite currently being on a shoot in the wilds of Kenya, she responded.
“A lot of my work involves traveling to foreign countries and living in remote places. My job is to become invisible and get close to people and wildlife, so I can bring their stories to life. For me, the intimate moments always matter the most.”
