2012 Year In Review

2012 was fraught with change and endeavor, sturm und drang. Now is the time to try to remember it all and thank everyone for their support and interest over the last year.

In January we started moving to our new location in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. As everyone knows, moves take longer and cost more than one can ever plan! Needless to say, we love our new location and are happy to be more a part of the art community. It has been great being a part of the popular First Thursday Art Walk.

At nearly the same time, The Natural Wonders Gallery opened in Las Vegas. This stunning gallery, featuring the work of Art Wolfe, Robert Rotella, and Robert Park, is located in The Shoppes at the Palazzo.
As always Art was on the road for a good part of year, photographing for various projects and leading photography tours and seminars. Destinations included Australia; South Africa, Tanzania and Rwanda; Brazil’s Pantanal; Ireland, France, Italy, and Croatia; and many locations stateside, such as Alaska’s Lake Clark, the Carolinas, Utah, Washington, California, Pennsylvania, and Oregon; as well as a brief foray into Canada. Art also collaborated with legendary nature photographers Frans Lanting and Tom Mangelsen for a Masters of Nature Photography seminar.

On the fine art print and publishing front, we launched the Human Canvas, Art’s masterwork of painting, the human figure, and photography. This is both a limited edition print collection and book. www.humancanvasproject.com

Europe was good to Art as well; Germany’s Frederking & Thaler published Animal Art and Landschaften Zwischen Himmel und Erde. WWF Netherlands published Wereldnatuur (Art’s first book in Dutch!) and used it as a donation premium in celebration of their fiftieth year anniversary of saving wildlife around the world.

It is always an honor to receive accolades. The University of Washington, Art’s Alma Mater, honored him with a Timeless Award based on outstanding service and achievement since graduation. Landschaften Zwischen Himmel und Erde was named the Most Beautiful Science Book by Bild der Wissenschaft.

Giving accolades in return is gratifying: The 2012 renewal of the International Conservation Photography Awards came off without a hitch. Art founded this invitational in 1997 and it has spun off into its own orbit with the incredible support of the Burke Museum of History and Culture. www.icpawards.com

2013 already shows much promise as yet another memorable year for Art Wolfe, Inc. Stay tuned!

Guest Photographer: David Hall

Beneath Cold Seas cover: a lion’s mane jellyfish – the world’s largest – swims just beneath the surface

David Hall is a photographer and author specializing in marine life subjects and underwater photography. His photographs have won numerous awards and have appeared in most major magazines in North America and Europe. David’s latest book, Beneath Cold Seas: The Underwater Wilderness of the Pacific Northwest, was recently awarded the 2012 National Outdoor Book Award for best “Design and Artistic Merit”.

Beneath Cold Seas is the first large format photographic book to feature the marine life of the Pacific Northwest. Critics have noted that it is one of the few books of underwater photography to focus on a cold/temperate water ecosystem, successfully challenging the widespread misperception that cold water marine life is dull and uninteresting.
Beneath Cold Seas is published in the U.S. by the University of Washington Press and in Canada by Greystone Books and the David Suzuki Foundation; it has also been published in the U.K and in Germany (as Kaltwasserwelten). It is available at Amazon, and in many Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores; it retails for $45.
For more information, including critic’s reviews, a slide show and the link to a four-minute video, visit www.beneathcoldseas.com For more of David Hall’s photography, visit www.seaphotos.com

Here are a few images from this beautiful book.
