Photographer Art Wolfe Releases 99th Published Work
SEATTLE, WA — Today, photographer Art Wolfe is releasing his 99th published work, Migrations: Wildlife in Motion. Inspired by the imaginative spatial designs of Dutch artist M.C. Escher, photographer Art Wolfe 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, the Canadian Arctic, and the Ozarks are among the locations that create the backdrop for Wolfe’s dramatic artistry as he showcases “classic migrators,” the beauty of their trek, the splendor of the patterns they create, and the cycles they are compelled to repeat.
Over the course of his forty-year career, award-winning photographer Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations. His photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition, and perspective, and his
photographic mission is multifaceted—art, wildlife advocacy, and journalism all inform his work.
Counting all editions of his published work, Migrations will be Art’s 99th in his magnificent collection. It will surely inspire nature photographers, travelers, and animal lovers alike. The release of his 99th book also begs the question: What will be his 100th?
