Highlights from my Winter Newsletter

Dear Friends,

I write this from aboard the Akademik Ioffe as we cruise along the Antarctic Peninsula. I am here with Denis Glennon, Shem Campion and Frans Lanting and having a terrific time. Denis offers excellent travel experiences and if you haven’t looked at his offerings lately, you should! Coming up in February is his Mystical Myanmar Tour with Gavriel Jecan and local guide Win Kyaw Zan. Change is happening in Myanmar at an unchecked pace and I recommend seeing it sooner rather than later. Also, this is a great time of year to get away to an exotic and warm part of the world.

Earth Is My Witness has been garnering accolades from top publications; among many features, American Photo has named it a “Best Photo Book of the Year” and it is an Editor’s Pick in O, The Oprah Magazine, “destined for keepsake status.” It is also a featured item on Breakthrough Photography’s Kickstarter campaign. Be part of helping to launch a new company and support a young entrepreneur in his drive to create new and better ultra slim filters. I have been using them for several months now and I’m really impressed with their quality.

Lit by lanterns, fishermen along the shores of the Li River prepare their cormorants for an evening of fishing.  A tradition unique to Guangxi in south central China, fishermen have always trained the cormorants to dive after and catch fish attracted to the light of the lantern.

You may have seen the short feature on Seattle’s KING5 News I did with Environmental Reporter Gary Chittim. I cannot stress how important it is to get out and reconnect with nature; it certainly keeps me grounded and much less stressed.

If you are in Seattle this month we have signed copies of Earth Is My Witness on hand, which would make any enthusiastic traveler, photographer, or art lover a thoughtful holiday gift along with tickets to the Earth is My Witness Presentation at Benaroya Hall in April. I would like to offer you a free Earth Is My Witness calendar with purchase of the Earth Is My Witness book (as long as supplies last) by using this coupon code in the store: witnesscal2015

Happy Holidays,

Art Wolfe
