From LA to London!


This trip has been a whirlwind of images and ideas. It started at the Andrei Duman Gallery, where I have ten prints hanging for the next two months. Not only is the Duman Gallery remarkable for its fine art print selection, it has won awards for its unique design. After a day spent with friends and casual photography in Venice Beach, I presented my Photography As Art seminar to a good crowd.

I then headed off to London to the Remembering Elephants opening at the La Galleria Pall Mall, which runs through October 1. This was followed by the keynote and book launch at the Royal Geographical Society with the Born Free Foundation. I give a hearty thanks to Margot Raggett, who has worked tirelessly on the Remembering Elephants project with 65 photographers for the last two years!

I’m back in town for a few days, but for those of you in or around the Denver area, I’ll be presenting Photography As Art there this coming Sunday!

Photographs from the Edge Published!

art-pfte

Photographs from the Edge is a stunning and intimate behind-the-scenes guide to the experiences, decisions, and methods that have influenced forty years of stunning images captured around the world. Legendary photographer Art Wolfe and co-author Rob Sheppard transport readers on a global journey, while carrying on a dialog about photography, tools and process, world travel, close calls, and photographic opportunities both taken and missed.

From the explosive drama of a volcanic eruption in Iceland to the poignant moment of a tiny sea turtle hatchling scuttling to the ocean, Photographs from the Edge is a lifetime of experience distilled into a rich photographic education. Many of these photographs can never be duplicated as cultures and landscapes are transformed and wildlife diminishes or disappears all together. No matter his subject, Wolfe regales us with the stories behind the photographs and helps us experience life on the world’s most unique photo safari.

Visit our online store to order Art’s latest book!

“Art Wolfe has spent a career mixing his passion for artful photography and his passion for the diversity, nature wonder, and humanity of our world. With this collection we enjoy a grand tour of our world as only Art Wolfe can bring us. In a way, you could call Art the ultimate tour guide.”
– Rick Steves, travel writer and public television host

From Art’s Bookshelf: The Time Between – The Sequences of Minor White

sequences-minor-white
“At first glance a photograph can inform us. At second glance it can reach us.”

One of my good friends (thank you, Cindy!) sent me a marvelously thoughtful book of photographer Minor White’s instrumental work, “The Time Between: The Sequences of Minor White”. White was a visionary photographer, an educator, poet and writer. He believed that the power of images could be transformed when positioned sequentially, thus creating a new level of interpretation. This is something I take to heart in my Photography As Art seminar and I will really enjoy thoroughly absorbing this book.

Off to London Next Week!

African elephants are highly intelligent and have a wide variety of behaviors. Herds are made up primarily of females and juveniles, as the males move from herd to herd searching for mates. Amboseli National Park, Kenya

This coming week I’ll be heading across the pond to London to join the Royal Geographic Society in celebrating the launch of Remembering Elephants, a book project containing photographs from over 65 of the world’s top wildlife photographers illustrating the life of an elephant. I have the privilege of presenting at the launch event occurring on the evening of next Thursday, September 22nd, which will also commemorate the opening of an exhibit featuring images from the book itself. 100% of the proceeds from this book project and event will benefit conservation and anti-poaching efforts in Africa.

There is still time to join us for this important event! Purchase tickets here to be a part of the opening festivities, which will include a presentation by elephant expert Ian Redmond, OBE, as well as myself. Books will be available for purchase with opportunities for signings. There will also be an auction of prints of many of the images seen in the book.

Special thanks to the Born Free Foundation and Land Rover for their support and sponsorship of this event!

If you can’t make it to this event, but would still like to contribute to a worthy cause, you can order Remembering Elephants here!
