2016 Year In Review
2016 ended with the airing of Tales by Light — this time to the global audience of Netflix. This has led to a renewed interest in my 26-episode series Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge, which you can purchase on DVD or catch on PBS and CreateTV, as well as in Germany and France on ARTE-7.
I traveled to nineteen countries, flew 189,437 miles and was at sea for 9,872 miles in the following areas: Antarctica, India, Laos, California, Washington, Florida, Cuba, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Galapagos, Texas, Germany, Tanzania, Alaska, Oregon, Democratic Republic of Congo, London, Colorado, Manitoba, South Georgia Island, Falkland Islands, Myanmar, and Minnesota.
Every year I do a slideshow of my year’s travels for friends and you can see the images here.
The 175 print Earth Is My Witness exhibition was on display at two locations in Germany and seen by over 15000 people. I had gallery shows at the Rotella Gallery in Bellevue, WA; the Andrei Duman Gallery in Woodland Hills, CA; and was part of the National Parks shows at The G2 Gallery in Venice, CA.
Several books were published including Migrations, Photographs from the Edge, and foreign editions of The Art of the Photograph.
I was also honored to have one of my images chosen to represent Yellowstone National Park in the USPS Forever Stamp collection commemorating 100 years of the National Park Service. The iconic image used to represent one of the world’s great parks is also available for purchase as a print in my online store.
Now in 2017 I am gearing up for Photography as Art presentations, starting January 22 in Austin, TX. After that it’s back to Germany to present at the Mundologia Festival. In March I will be presenting at the NANPA Summit in Jacksonville, FL. Later in the year I will be heading to Greenland for the first time. I invite you to join me!
I look forward to sharing my travels in 2017 with you, and wish everyone a wonderful New Year!
I love Travels To The Edge…over and over again. I purchased the series for my parents, years ago, and they watched one dvd each Sunday as their “matinee”. It brought beauty and entertainment into their home. My father was a photographer in Greenland during WW11, and I love studying his photos from that time.. I can’t wait ti see it thru your eyes. I hope you make more dvd’s some day. By the way, my mother thought you were “adorable”. I think she related to the connection you make with people before you photograph them. She took up photography in her 70’s and was the very definition of a street photographer. There are no strangers in her world. Today, my husband and I do our best to follow her example.
