I leave the wildlife and elephants behind and enter the haunting landscapes in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia.
Dry, parched lake beds that offer stark contrasting compositions. What a great place to photograph!
Here are some of the locations of the images in this slideshow:
•Sossusvlei (mud pan), The Namib Dessert, Namibia
•Aerials over Sossusvlei and from the Okavango, Botswana
•Pictures of his room at the Namibia lodge, Little Kulala Lodge.
•Dead Vlei (burned-looking trees in a dead lake), The Namib Desert, Namibia
Hey, I’m coming back here in January, 2012 to do an international workshop. Want to join me? Let my staff know you are interested.
I’m giving this book to all my dog loving friends this Christmas. Gorgeous photos by Art Wolfe and lively and emotional text by Jeffrey Masson.
What I like most about this book is that it has avoided the usualy cutesy pictures. Rather it has a kind of multicultural theme. It shows us the universal bond between humans and dogs. With pictures of stone age tribes, asian boat people, African children, and rich snoots on Fifth Avenue.
The publisher compared this book to The Family of Man. That seems entirely appropriate. And it is time to acknowledge that dogs are part of that universal family as well.
Preeminent evolutionary biologist and controversial author Richard Dawkins is famous for taking on the difficult issues. We had the honor of working with him a decade ago when he contributed an essay to Art’s masterwork The Living Wild.
