The 09/2022 issue of National Geographic Magazine is featuring Stephen Wilkes’ latest project for National Geographic entitled ‘America the Beautiful’.

The issue focuses on the 30 by 30 initiative and all of the locations were chosen based on their direct connection and importance to the 30 by 30  initiative with the headline of ‘In a warming climate we need to radically think about how we conserve nature’.
The 30 by 30 initiative is a worldwide initiative for governments to designate 30% of Earth’s land and ocean area as potected areas by 2030.

Stephen Wilkes has worked on this project for the last 6 months and the ‘Day to Night’ photograph ‘Bears Ears National Monument, Utah’ is the cover of the 09/2022 magazine with an article and additional 4 interior gatefolds of the locations he photographed.
