Carbon NYC hosted its fourth 2011 Salon Event, featuring keynote speaker, Mr. Louie Psihoyos, followed by an exclusive screening of The Cove held at Core Club. Louie Psihoyos has been widely regarded as one of the top photographers in the world. He was hired directly out of college to shoot for National Geographic and created images for the yellow-bordered magazine for 18 years. His ability to bring humanity and wit to complicated science stories carries over to his filmmaking.

He has also shot for dozens of other magazines including Fortune, Smithsonian, Discover, GEO, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine, New York Magazine, Sports Illustrated and Rock and Ice. His work has been seen on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic Television and the History Channel. Museums and private collectors around the world have shown Psihoyos’ photography.

In 2005, he along with a group of filmmaking environmentalists created The Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS). This Boulder-based non-profit seeks to show the world the beauty and threats to our planet’s crucial resource, our oceans.

His first film, The Cove, has won more than a hundred awards around the world, including an Oscar. It has also inspired millions of individuals towards action to save the environment. His next film project, The Singing Planet, looks at the current mass extinction of species caused by mankind.

The Carbon Salon Speaker Series began in 2010 with the goal of bringing speakers from a variety of industries, all leaders in their fields, to share their insights and expertise on a variety of topics from business to international affairs.
