Back in May, I did a Q&A with Michael Muller about photographing the Galapagos as part of a collaboration between Swiss watchmaker IWC and the Charles Darwin Foundation. Next Wednesday, a selection of those photos will go on view in Los Angeles at the Hanger at Milk Studios. If you’re in town and would like to attend the event, scheduled for 7 to 10 p.m. November 11, please email RSVP-USA@iwc.com.

If you like, you can also download this pdf (IWC_Aquatimer_Collection) of some of Michael’s images, with text by Grégoire Koulbanis, a veteran diver and scientific adviser for UNESCO, who was part of the IWC Galapagos expedition. In fact, here’s a nice photo of him and Michael at the IWC Schaffhausen Private Dinner Reception in Geneva in January.

Michael, meanwhile, is gearing up for a new adventure: climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. In January, he will join a motley team of celebrities and other notables—Jessica Biel is among those whose names have been mentioned—for Summit on the Summit. The climb, spearheaded by the Grammy-nominated singer Kenna, is intended to raise awareness of the appalling lack of clean drinking water in so many parts of the world. To find out more, including how you can contribute, check out The Huffington Post’s story on the Summit, and visit the Summit’s website.
