Tales By Light Premiering May 24th!

 

Last year I traveled extensively with cinematographer Abraham Joffe and the Untitled Films Works crew, filming in East Africa, Papua New Guinea, Alaska and here in Seattle. This work has come to fruition in “Tales By Light” produced by Canon Australia and National Geographic Channel.

I am a featured photographer along with Darren Jew, Richard I’Anson, Peter Eastway and Krystle Wright.

Talking Photography 2014 at Curious Animal

Art wolfe on location in Bhutan

curiousanimallogowebCurious Animal is an online magazine for Adventure Travel, Photography, Music, Books, Big Issues and Ideas from around the world. Graeme Green interviewed me for a couple of pieces on Curious Animal. Apparently they had the pleasure of talking to many of the world’s best photographers, from Steve McCurry to Soren Solkaer, who spend their time traveling the world photographing everything from sharks to rock stars. I discussed disappearing cultures… Roger Ballen on the art of the strange… Chris Hadfield on photographing the Earth from space… Here are some of their thoughts on photography, the world and life itself.

Crazywise from Phil Borges

For the last two years brilliant Seattle-based photographer Phil Borges has been working on a feature length documentary called CRAZYWISE. The idea grew out of his fascination with shamanism and the way indigenous cultures often look at severe mental disorders. It wasn’t until he started working on this film that he realized the depth and severity of the mental health crisis in the USA. However, this film is about hope. During the production, they have discovered underreported, innovative, community-based treatment approaches that emphasize hope for recovery, acceptance, and peer to peer mentorship. Their goal is to highlight these successful programs and have the film spark a long overdue conversation for change.
