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.

From LA to London!


This trip has been a whirlwind of images and ideas. It started at the Andrei Duman Gallery, where I have ten prints hanging for the next two months. Not only is the Duman Gallery remarkable for its fine art print selection, it has won awards for its unique design. After a day spent with friends and casual photography in Venice Beach, I presented my Photography As Art seminar to a good crowd.

I then headed off to London to the Remembering Elephants opening at the La Galleria Pall Mall, which runs through October 1. This was followed by the keynote and book launch at the Royal Geographical Society with the Born Free Foundation. I give a hearty thanks to Margot Raggett, who has worked tirelessly on the Remembering Elephants project with 65 photographers for the last two years!

I’m back in town for a few days, but for those of you in or around the Denver area, I’ll be presenting Photography As Art there this coming Sunday!

Earth Is My Witness Exhibition News


Last week’s opening of the Earth Is My Witness exhibit at the Stadtmuseum Schleswig was a rousing success. The visit was unfortunately short because of my workshop schedule, but I was able to get a lot in. Along with the opening of the exhibit, I met with sponsors, had a meet and greet with National Geographic readers, presented a lecture, and signed the Golden Book of the City. What an honor it was and this old heart was truly warmed by the amazing reception.

The exhibit runs through October 30th.

Earth Is My Witness Exhibit Opening at Stadtmuseum Schleswig

SMSL-Anzeige Art Wolfe MM 184x265mm.indd

I am very excited to be opening the latest Earth Is My Witness Exhibit on June 2 at the Stadtmuseum Schleswig in Schleswig, Germany. I will giving a presentation on June 3rd at 8pm at the A. P. Moller-Skolen. Tickets can be purchased by emailing  stadtmuseum@schleswig.de. The exhibit runs June 3-October 30.

With his “Earth Is My Witness” project, Art Wolfe presents the highlights of his long experience in photography for the first time in a major retrospective. It is the most comprehensive presentation of his work that has ever been exhibited and it demonstrates his boundless curiosity about the world. The spectrum ranges from exotic themes in subtropical climes, such as a colorful camel market in the Indian town of Pushkar, to the most inhospitable regions on our planet including, for example, the moment at which a polar bear mother and her cubs leave the ice cave after hibernation.

Very few other photo artists can match Art Wolfe who, time and again, comes up with pictures which not only tell a gripping story, but also become icons. Perhaps it is his instinct for just the right moment, the perfect light, the creative use of state-of-the-art exposure technique, and the dialog with his subjects. Art Wolfe’s expertise is impressively demonstrated in the retrospective “Earth Is My Witness”.

The exhibition is an exclusive production by the Städtische Galerie Iserlohn and the Stadtmuseum Schleswig together with the artist. It opens on February 11, 2016 in Iserlohn where it will be open to the public until May 1, 2016. After that, the exhibition will move to the municipal museum in Schleswig and can be seen there from June 2 (opening) to October 30, 2016.

Everest

Everest Expedition, Mount Everest, Tibet
Everest Expedition, Mount Everest, Tibet

Recently I went to see Everest with friends and it took me right back to May of 1996 when the tragedy occurred. People will quibble about the movie being true to life, but that’s not what I am addressing here. The climbing community is tight, especially in a town like Seattle, and I knew Scott Fischer through mutual friends. From time to time he would come to my office to select mountain imagery to promote his company Mountain Madness. As is often the case, I was traveling when the news came from Nepal. Scott’s wife Jeannie arrived with his precious film and my staff was galvanized into action. They assisted her with getting it developed, edited and labeled, and making sure the selects got into a stock photography agency for worldwide distribution. It was one small thing we could take care of that helped her and her two daughters through an agonizing time in their lives.
