Following two years of field research, Brian Skerry, one of the world’s most extraordinary underwater photographers, asks: “Will humans and dolphins one day be able to speak to one another?”

Photojournalist Brian Skerry is one of National Geographic’s most seasoned explorers, having dedicated the last thirty years to capturing thought-provoking and intimate images of the oceans’ majestic creatures.

Live on stage this October, Skerry will share his incredible adventures and scientific insights, including his recently published photographs from two years’ work in nine locations—including Patagonia, Honduras, and Hawaii—into dolphins’ intelligence and their awe-inspiring ability to learn and communicate. Skerry presents his captivating images alongside cutting-edge research, asking questions like, how do dolphins communicate? Can humans learn to mimic dolphin whistles and chirps, or to one day create an artificial language through which both species can speak to one another? Skerry invites audiences to discover the beautiful complexity of dolphin cognition, as well as the dazzling diversity and complexity of coral reefs and much more.
