Author, journalist, and photographer Peter Guttman has traveled to more than two hundred countries on all seven continents, creating a body of work that explores the world’s cultural and geographic diversity. A two-time recipient of the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year Award, Peter has taught at the International Center of Photography, and his work has been featured in major publications, books, travel guides, and exhibitions.

His teenage son, Chase, has followed in his footsteps, traveling to over forty-five countries and every American state. In 2010 and 2013, Chase was named Young Travel Photographer of the Year in an international competition judged by museum curators and magazine editors.

Sharing photographs from their global excursions, they will discuss their separate journeys in image making—Peter works exclusively with film, and Chase with digital—and their evolving partnership.
