Photos from MUNDOLogia Festival 2017


Thank you, Germany! Once again, I was overwhelmed by the reception of and appreciation for my work, this time at MUNDOLogia Festival! It was a whirlwind two days in the lovely city of Freiburg. To decompress from the flight from Seattle, I wandered around town a while and did a bit of photography with my iPhone. After that, it was off to a few meetings and a reception prior to the keynote presentation of Earth Is My Witness. It was quite the event, as the photos can attest to. I am so thankful for the warm welcome each and every time I visit Germany.

A special shout out to Tobias Friedrich and Kevin Coghlin for the terrific photos of the MUNDOlogia Festival event, and organizers Tobias Hauser and David Hettich for their extraordinary hospitality. It was an extraordinary experience!

Earth is My Witness at MUNDOlogia 2017

 

I’m fortunate to have been invited to speak this coming weekend at the 14th annual MUNDOlogia festival in Freiburg, Germany where I will be presenting Earth is My Witness. Two of my most memorable trips in 2016 were to present Witness in Germany, where I always receive a warm welcome. Last year when presenting in Schleswig, I was privileged enough to sign the Golden Book of the City, an unexpected and much appreciated honor.

The festival runs through the weekend, and I will be presenting on Saturday the 4th at 4 PM local time at Konzerthaus Freiburg.

2016 Year In Review

2016 ended with the airing of Tales by Light — this time to the global audience of Netflix. This has led to a renewed interest in my 26-episode series Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge, which you can purchase on DVD or catch on PBS and CreateTV, as well as in Germany and France on ARTE-7.

I traveled to nineteen countries, flew 189,437 miles and was at sea for 9,872 miles in the following areas: Antarctica, India, Laos, California, Washington, Florida, Cuba, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Galapagos, Texas, Germany, Tanzania, Alaska, Oregon, Democratic Republic of Congo, London, Colorado, Manitoba, South Georgia Island, Falkland Islands, Myanmar, and Minnesota.

Every year I do a slideshow of my year’s travels for friends and you can see the images here.

The 175 print Earth Is My Witness exhibition was on display at two locations in Germany and seen by over 15000 people. I had gallery shows at the Rotella Gallery in Bellevue, WA; the Andrei Duman Gallery in Woodland Hills, CA; and was part of the National Parks shows at The G2 Gallery in Venice, CA.

Several books were published including Migrations, Photographs from the Edge, and foreign editions of The Art of the Photograph.

I was also honored to have one of my images chosen to represent Yellowstone National Park in the USPS Forever Stamp collection commemorating 100 years of the National Park Service. The iconic image used to represent one of the world’s great parks is also available for purchase as a print in my online store.

Now in 2017 I am gearing up for Photography as Art presentations, starting January 22 in Austin, TX. After that it’s back to Germany to present at the Mundologia Festival. In March I will be presenting at the NANPA Summit in Jacksonville, FL. Later in the year I will be heading to Greenland for the first time. I invite you to join me!

I look forward to sharing my travels in 2017 with you, and wish everyone a wonderful New Year!

Photography As Art Coming to Austin in Two Weeks!

Calling all Texans! I’ll be at the Zach Theater in Austin on January 22nd (that’s in 2 weeks!) to deliver my “Photography as Art” seminar.

Help me spread the word and share this with anyone you think may be interested in attending!

In this full-day seminar, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions. You’ll explore innovative ways to translate conceptual ideas into creative results, learn how to spot the non-obvious, and uncover new ways to expand your visual imagination.

Photography As Art in Indianapolis this Sunday!

paa-indy-blog

This upcoming Sunday, I will be heading to the “Crossroads of America”, Indianapolis, to present Photography As Art in the DeBoest Lecture Hall at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. There is still time to join the seminar and spend the day with me as I discuss the many ways to use photography as an artistic medium to identify and capture the design elements in the world around us, creating visually interesting images in virtually any location.

Sign up now to reserve your spot in the seminar!

Highly recommended! I couldn’t wait to grab my camera and try some of the techniques that Art shared today. The images we saw were stunning. Art explained a very difficult concept seemingly with ease and inspired the attendees to see photography in a different way.

Two exciting bits of news today for those of you in New York and across the pond in the U.K.!

Limited spots still remain available for my Photography As Art Seminar in New York City this Sunday. During this day-long seminar you’ll learn from my lifetime of experience and interest in treating photography as an artistic medium how to create compelling and creative shots wherever you happen to be in the world, including your own back yard. Maximizing the artistic and creative opportunities of capturing images has always been a priority in my work, and I look forward to sharing my insights and experiences with you!

Sign up on our events page, or call 1-206-332-0993 to reserve your spot today!

I have attended several other Art Wolfe workshops in the past and have always learned something new. The Photography as Art Workshop in Denver was no different! I am by inclination a nature photographer, but Art’s presentation was much more than just nature photography. It was truly inspiring, and will have a significant impact on my photography in the future. Art’s message truly hit home for me. I would recommend the Photograph as Art Workshop to anyone with a serious interest in photography.

-Darryl D., Denver CO.

 

My latest book, Photographs from the Edge: A Master Photographer’s Insights on Capturing an Extraordinary World has been published and is now available in the UK as of today as well! Photographs from the Edge is a lifetime of experience distilled into a rich photographic education. Many of these photographs can never be duplicated as cultures and landscapes are transformed and wildlife diminishes or disappears all together.

Have a great weekend, and I look forward to meeting everyone at my seminar in New York on Sunday!
