Professor Jim Richardson

Professor Jim Richardson
  • National Geographic Photographer
Landscapes speak to me because for as long as we’ve been roaming the earth, we’ve been trying to read the land.
Jim Richardson has been a photographer for National Geographic for more than 30 years, specializing in global environmental issues and landscapes. He also is interested in the Celtic world, with special attention to Scotland and its remote islands. His documentary photography has focused on the American Great Plains and includes extended coverage of small-town life in his native Kansas. He has a 30-year photographic relationship with the people of Cuba, Kansas (population 220). This unusual body of work has been excerpted in National Geographic, LIFE, and many other publications worldwide. Among his books is The Colorado: A River at Risk, which has been recognized widely for its contribution to awareness of water issues in the American West. In addition to photographing for National Geographic magazine, Mr. Richardson represents National Geographic in keynote presentations, media appearances, cultural enrichment lectures for travel groups, and workshops.
