Dudley Edmondson

Dudley Edmondson is well-known as a professional photographer and author. He is also an accomplished filmmaker and public speaker. Much of his work centers on the environment and ethnic diversity in the outdoors. He was one of the first to highlight the involvement of African Americans in the public lands system. Unsatisfied with the numbers of people who looked like him among those he encountered in his outdoor pursuits, Edmondson set out to create a set of outdoor role models for the African American community by writing his landmark book, Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places (AdventureKeen Publications 2006), featuring luminaries in the environmental and outdoor recreation fields. He has also been immersed in the effort to help the conservation sector become more inclusive.
