Wishing You & Yours Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays from Art Wolfe Headquarters in currently snowy Seattle! Here’s wishing everyone a safe and healthy winter with family and friends. As we move ahead to 2023, it’s important to also look back and reflect on the year that was.

For myself, that means reviewing a whole lot of trips and photos as I prepare the end of the year collection that I’ll eventually share with friends, including here on the blog with all of you! I’m still working on this, along side wrapping up final selections for Wild Lives, my epic opus on international wildlife coming in fall of 2023.

For the time being, here is a selection of my most recent images from Q4 of this year. Enjoy the photos, enjoy the season –  and have a very happy New Year!

New Photos from the Pantanal!


The Pantanal is one of my favorite places on the planet. It offers an amazing display of wildlife, landscapes, and cowboy culture. Recently I had a successful trip there, creating photos for my wildlife opus coming out in Fall 2023.

Have a look at the photos–I am thinking of adding a photo journey there for 2023. Drop me an email and we’ll get you on a pre-registration list so you have first dibs to join me on a trip of a lifetime!

Viva Magenta, Pantone’s Color of the Year!


Art and design nerds rejoice! It’s the most magical time of the year – when Pantone announces their color of the year. For 2023, it’s Viva Magenta – a nearly wine-red take on the traditional magenta. As usual I’ve put together a gallery inspired by the color. Enjoy!

Pantone’s Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, and a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.

This year’s Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and rebellious spirit. It is a color that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all.
