National Geographic Live! The Photographers: Lanting & Kendrick

For Wings of the Albatross, Frans Lanting documented the world of the albatross, a bird enshrined in legend and poetry. Traveling to the various Pacific island locations that serve the birds as way stations on their journeys, Lanting captured hauntingly beautiful images of these graceful birds in flight, as well as intimate moments in their island breeding grounds. Narration is provided by the photographer.

In 21st Century Cowboys, Robb Kendrick traveled the western U.S. and Mexico to produce a fascinating portrait of the modern heirs to the cowboy legacy. A master of tintype, a technique of wet plate photography on metal that was widely used in the mid-19th century, he has created a portfolio of images that evoke the look and feel of another time while faithfully recording modern subjects and views. Narration is provided by the photographer. 2008, 90 minutes, National Geographic documentary, not rated.
