Best known for his aerial photography, Steinmetz has done much of his work with a foot-launched motorized paraglider—known affectionately as his “flying lawn chair”—which he pilots while taking pictures, as well as using drones to document climate change and the global food supply. On this special evening, George Steinmetz will take us on an unforgettable aerial journey around the world as seen through his lens.
