Mark and Bonnie Overgaard’s Excellent (India) Adventure

This trip, which ranged from the color riot that is the Holi Festival in Mathura, to the holy waters and ghats along the Ganges in Varanasi, through the beautiful landscapes and tigers of Bandhavgarh and on to colorful desert settings of Rajasthan, was a terrific experience for us both. Art Wolfe magic was a big part that experience. Art is a funny, engaging and kind human being, as well as an excellent, patient teacher of photography. We would join him again in a heartbeat for more photography travel and hope to do so soon!

Pretty in Pink: Springtime in Japan

This group of photos represents a lot of 4:40am wake-ups in Japan in order to get the best atmospheric conditions as well as to avoid the tourists. Lots of foul weather as of late, which played nicely into our shoots. I especially like the Lotus stems!

Meisterhaft getarnt: Von der Kunst nicht gesehen zu werden

kunstTäuschung und Tarnung werden häufig eingesetzt, wenn es darum geht, als Spezies zu überleben, und oft besteht die Überlebenstaktik darin, sich einfach unsichtbar zu machen. Art Wolfe, einer der bedeutendsten Naturfotografen unserer Zeit, fotografierte über mehrere Jahrzehnte hinweg Tiere auf der ganzen Welt, die die Kunst der Tarnung perfekt beherrschen. Ein Gepard verschwindet im hohen Gras, ein Rotfuchs löst sich im herbstlichen Wald scheinbar auf, und was wie eine zarte Orchidee aussieht, entpuppt sich als räuberische Fangschrecke. In magischen Suchbildern für große und kleine Entdecker hat Art Wolfe diese Meister der Tarnung eingefangen.

And for those of you, who don’t read German (like me), Knesebeck Verlag is publishing an updated version of Vanishing Act, originally published in 2005.  Now with more photos, captions, and a new design!
