Meet National Geographic photojournalist Jose Azel
Building on the excitement of our feature in the current issue of National Geographic Magazine, the Observatory is proud to announce that it will be hosting an evening with National Geographic photojournalist Jose Azel on Thursday, February 19 at the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel.
We invite you to join us for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the National Geographic article, ‘Backyard Arctic,’ as viewed through the lens of acclaimed photographer Jose Azel.
The evening will also include a reception with the artist and members of the Observatory staff, followed by a live video connection with our summit weather station. There will be great door prizes and a raffle for a framed print from the Observatory’s exclusive collection of Brad Washburn aerial photography.
Tickets are available for purchase online, and advance reservations are recommended as seating is limited. For more information, visit the event’s page.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory, as it works to match a $25,000 challenge grant from the Kendall C. and Anna Ham Charitable Foundation. Sponsorship is provided by L.L.Bean, with additional support from HEB Engineers, The Mountain Ear, Conway Daily Sun, WMWV-FM, RSN TV-16 and the Attitash Grand Summit Hotel.
