Justin Black Appointed as New ILCP Director


The International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP) has appointed Justin Black as its new director. Black will manage an expansion of the organization's activities, including the creation of the new "Earth in Focus" initiative that will offer workshops, lectures, exhibitions, book publishing and multimedia activities. Cristina Mittermeier, the founder and, since its creation in 2005, executive director of the ILCP, will assume the role of president of the ILCP and will remain fully engaged with the promotion and expansion of the organization.

For the past seven years, Black has been the general manager and curator of Mountain Light Photography in Bishop, Calif. Mountain Light was created by legendary photographer (and ILCP honorary member) Galen Rowell with his wife and business partner, Barbara, in 1983. Through the efforts of Mittermeier and Black, Mountain Light and ILCP recently announced a new partnership, so ties are expected to grow between the two entities.
