EVENT: Explore the world with Levison Wood
"Humans like to see what is beyond the next horizon. It’s in our genes – literally," explorer Levison Wood says to a crowd gathered to hear him speak at last night's Le Clos event, in association with Esquire Middle East.
The British award-winning author was the guest of honour for a private event held at Bahr at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown Dubai. In town for a series of talks at the Emirates Airlines Literature Festival, fans of the Wood were invited to a rather intimate preview hosted by Dubai's fine wines and luxury spirits retailer Le Clos.
Wood entertained a suave-looking crowd with stories from his past expeditions - including his most recent journey circumnavigating the Arabian Peninsula - as he spoke in conversation with Esquire's Editor-in-chief, Matthew Baxter-Priest.
The author, explorer and photographer who specialises in documenting people and cultures in remote regions and post-conflict zones, has lead expeditions on five continents, and presenting multiple critically acclaimed documentaries.
