On Beauty honors the life and work of businessman and conservationist Doug Tompkins. This photography exhibit considers how the pursuit of beauty became a central, animating force in Doug’s intellectual development and informed his entire worldview. The exhibition, which premiered at the David Brower Center, explore several key themes: how the diversity of life emerges from beauty; how beauty and ecological health are intrinsically linked; and how Doug’s personal narrative intersects with conservation history.
Doug Tompkins co-founded the clothing company Esprit and outdoor equipment company The North Face. He purchased millions of acres in Chile and Argentina in order to create national parks. Tompkins died in 2015 following a kayak accident in Patagonia.
