In April I will be releasing my 99th published work, Migrations: Wildlife in Motion. Inspired by the imaginative spatial designs of Dutch artist M.C. Escher, I traveled the globe in search of similar patterns in nature. The result is a book of remarkable wildlife images that captures both the beauty and the poignancy of animals on the move. Migrations: Wildlife in Motion (Earth Aware Editions, April 6, 2016, $35 hardcover) draws the reader into the energy, motion, and enduring spirit of life on the planet. The stunning images capture the delicate balance of our ecosystem, conveying the primordial stirrings that prompt a flock of snow geese to head south, monarch butterflies to bejewel a forest, or a colony of Indiana bats to snuggle in tight hibernation.
Kenya, Japan, South George Island, Trinidad, the Canadian Arctic, and the Ozarks are among the locations that create the backdrop for dramatic artistry showcasing “classic migrators,” the beauty of their trek, the splendor of the patterns they create, and the cycles they are compelled to repeat.
I am very excited about this release and loved working again with Earth Aware/Insight Editions– their printing is always top quality.
Book Launch Event! I will be signing books and giving a short presentation about Migrations.
