Jane Goodall and the chimpanzee Gregoire, Brazzaville Zoo, 1995
I grew up with Jane Goodall, Flo, Flint and Greybeard on the pages of National Geographic magazine in the 1960’s, and wildly came to photograph Fifi, Frodo, Freud and Jane in the 1990’s. Jane and I collaborated on the book Brutal Kinship, bringing to light the disappearing terrain chimpanzees relied on to live, and how we humans cruelly and without irony used our closest relative as stand in surrogates for space exploration, HIV and hepatitis research, language studies, and entertainment.
Jane, 83, is still at it traveling nonstop on her mission. She recently closed my exhibit WILD at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with a talk that brought me and the entire house to tears.
Opening in theaters today is a masterpiece film by Brett Morgen. JANE is an intense love story made from footage literally found in the NatGeo HQ basement from legendary Dutch filmmaker Hugo van Lawick, and includes a beautiful score by Philip Glass. This is far more revealing than any huge budget biopic could ever hope to match. #JANE

i rarely leave sugarhollow but the new film #jane took me to LA for the premiere 15,000 strong at the hollywood bowl .. we photographers are light fingered with food and table (ie theft) settings at receptions left to right nat geo explorer @erikaberman @amytoensing @amivitale and hidden by the Jane pillow that we fought over is @gerdludwig

For WILD: michael nichols at The Philadelphia Museum of Art ... two "distinguished visitors from California" our 1500 year old Coastal Redwood tree and a 3200 year old Giant Sequoia have joined sculptures Diana by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Alexander Calders Ghost in the museums Great Stair Hall.
The great trees are represented by tapestry prints @ 1/5 actual size with the Redwood seen here at 65 feet.

Today I will be a "visitor" @philamuseum with impressions of WILD and my time @ the museum during installation. The exhibit runs from June 27 - September 17.

Frisbee drooling at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
my life is complete. I did not screw up my love affair with Reba Peck. My sons are grown and do not hate me, even though I was always gone. We are stewards to a fantastic piece of land with Bears, box turtles, and great trees. We have new grandchildren Katman dude and Thermal the high flying hot dog .. and I just got a new knee

my work has come full circle from dreaming that I would be an artist but becoming a photojournalist to a fantastic display ..WILD michael nichols at the Philadelphia Museum of Art .. the incredibly smart Melissa Harris has spent 5 years translating my life for A WILDLIFE with Aperture an inspirational tale that begs humans to reexamine our relationship to nature

Hot damn .. tomorrow I will inhabit @philamuseum
