Calling Sir David Attenborough

Our parents always told us to aim high and take a risk, so here we go: We would like to extend an invitation out to one of our all time heroes, Sir David Attenborough to take part in our upcoming Eyes as Big as Plates photobook.

His narration on the pebble frog’s tribulations and his ability to boil the complexity of an ant’s life into a few sentences is riveting. We would be honoured to include his perspective on how he belongs to his surroundings much in the same way as he describes the everyday drama of a coral on its reef. How does he experience landscapes he narrates and is there even such a thing as nature?

Sir David Attenborough is one of our ultimate sources of inspiration and we constantly come back to his insights and observations. His curiosity and appreciation of his surroundings is par none, and that is why we would love to include him into our list of over fifty contributors to this project.

If you happen to live next door, see him at the pub, airport or a bog, could you please ask him to email or call: +1 646 541 7141 / +47 4577 5767.

You could also show him this website with a lovely feature on Eyes as Big as Plates that came out in The Huffington Post yesterday, or even pass on the link to our project site!

Eternally grateful for the six degrees of separation and you, Riitta and Karoline.
