Christina’s monograph is a deep dive into our intrinsic connection with nature, portrayed through the adventurous eyes of two young brothers. It reveals the enchanting magic and mysteries of the wilderness. This hand-crafted artist book, a limited-edition of only 200 copies, includes a 7” x 5” original archival print, each signed by Christina herself.

Moreover, the event will showcase a special exhibition of photographs by emerging young talents mentored by Christina, offering a glimpse into the future of photography. In a pledge to conservation, 10% of all proceeds from the evening will be generously donated to a nonprofit dedicated to the protection and restoration of our precious wildlands for generations to come.

About Christina McFaul: “Having grown up on a lake nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains of California, I found my sanctuary amidst the rolling hills of oaks and Malibu Creek State Park. This profound connection with the wild instilled in me a deep respect for our environment and a desire to protect it. My photography is an extension of this passion, capturing the raw essence of nature and highlighting the urgent need for conservation. Through my lens, I want to inspire others to see the beauty of our natural world and understand our critical role in preserving it.”
