SPArC Lecture Series hosts filmmaker and underwater photographer Mauricio Handler

Marine photojournalist, natural history filmmaker and expedition leader Mauricio Handler will visit Saint Joseph’s College on November 13 at 12 p.m. Handler is the third and final speaker in this fall’s Speakers, Performers, Artists and Culture Lecture Series. The lecture will be held in room 224 in Harold Alfond Hall.

For many years Handler was a part of National Geographic’s premier underwater photography team. His work includes documenting coastal landscapes and people living close to bodies of water. He also teaches one-week land and underwater photography workshops. He is the author of two books, “The British Virgin Islands: A Photographic Portrait” and Lonely Planet’s “Diving and Snorkeling Guide to the British Virgin Islands.”

Hosted by Saint Joseph’s Art Department, SPArC stimulates artistic discourse in the Lakes Region by creating an interdisciplinary platform that brings creative professionals to campus to share their work and lead discussions. All SPArC events are free and open to the public. For more information on the series, contact Chris Sullivan at
