Spring 2016 Print Catalog

Batstars, British Columbia, Canada The lush micro-climate of the Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands is home to many colorful creatures. Marine life thrives in oxygen-rich waters, while on land, spruce trees reach for the stratosphere. Batstars, also called seabats because of their webbed rays, bejewel tidepools in a galaxy of mauves, purples and pinks. British Columbia, Canada

Print of the Month March 2016: Sakura

Cherry blossoms over a green tile roof, Kyoto, Japan
Sakura, Kyoto, Japan

The peak cherry blossom timing is carefully tracked in Japan. People join their friends and families in large numbers at parks, shrines and temples that have “sakura” trees to hold flower-viewing parties. On this trip I had to arrive on location in the wee hours of the morning to have a more relaxed photographing experience. The large trees really are quite magnificent when in full bloom.

IMG_0493

The opening of the Earth Is My Witness exhibition at the Stadtische Galerie Iserlohn was more than I could have hoped for. I want to thank my hosts Rainier Danne and Holger Rudel for putting on a terrific event and the hundreds of people that showed up from all over Europe to welcome me, have me sign their Eden books, and see my presentation. The museum and theater were full to bursting!

The exhibit will be in Iserlohn through May 1. Then it will be moving on to Schleswig. If you missed me the first time around there will be another opportunity to see my presentation in early June!

Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia
Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia

 

I took to the skies to capture some shots of the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s great natural wonders & now it is part of the largest marine park encompassing 1.2 million square miles of ocean surrounding the continent. It’s always good news to hear of a preservation of our planet of this proportion.

2015 Year in Review

Some years are publishing years, some are traveling, 2015 was for reshaping the business—a necessity in the ever-changing photography industry. I closed my downtown Seattle gallery and launched this website, focusing my core business online and allowing me the ability to concentrate on other projects, of which there are many.

TV: Tales by Light aired in Australia & New Zealand

All the filming that I did in 2014 with Abraham Joffe and the Untitled Film Works crew—in East Africa, Papua New Guinea, Alaska, and here in Seattle—finally came to fruition. Tales by Light is a joint Canon Australia and National Geographic Channel production & I hope it comes to the US soon!

As for Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge, it continues to air in broadcast markets worldwide.

Travel & Photography: The year was bookended by East Africa

While travel slowed somewhat in 2015, I still managed trips to Tanzania (twice), Kenya, Yellowstone National Park (twice), Antarctica, India, Bali, Japan, Iceland, Washington State, Alaska, Svalbard, California, and Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. The final expedition of the year was to the Danakil Basin of Ethiopia.


Presentations, Gallery Shows, and Articles

I lectured at, among other places, Florida’s Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Fine Art, Seattle’s Benaroya Hall, Portland’s OMSI, and at #OPTIC2015 in New York. Human Canvas took over the Rotella Gallery in Soho for the month of November. DPreview.com published several well-received articles on my experiences photographing emperor penguins, humpback whales, and Iceland.

Vanishing Act in USA, German & French

VANISHING ACT Photographs by Art Wolfe, text by Barbara Sleeper In this revised edition, legendary wildlife photographer Art Wolfe turns to one of nature's most fundamental survival techniques: the vanishing act. His portraits show animals and insects disappearing into their surroundings, using deceptions, disguises, lures, and decoys to confuse the eye of both predator and prey. Spotting each cryptic animal amid Wolfe's clever compositions is both a fun and an informative challenge. At a time when many species are performing permanent vanishing acts due to habitat loss and human encroachment, this book showcases the beauty and evolutionary extremes of animal behavior and artfully illustrates the tenacious will to stay alive in an eat-or-be-eaten world. Softcover: 224 pages Publisher: Cameron + Company; Revised edition (Oct 14, 2014) Language: English Product Dimensions: 12 x 8.5 inches Preorder: http://store.artwolfe.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=526 Book will be signed and shipped October 14, 2014.

Awards & Honoraria

Earth Is My Witness garnered several publishing awards, including an IBPA Benjamin Franklin and an Independent Publisher. As for moi, I was named honorary chair of Washington Wild.

Arctic Fox, Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada
Arctic Fox, Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada

Standing on a little rise an arctic fox basks in the rosy serenity of the setting northern sun of Canada’s Ellesmere Island. I love the contrast of deep blue hues around the fox with the pastel pinks which makes for a very calm and relaxed image.

We are really thrilled with the prints we doing using the Epson Metallic Photo Paper Luster. It has a resin-coated base and a pearl-like luster finish which produces images with high sharpness, excellent dynamic range, and a wide color gamut. “Ellesmere Fox” looks great printed on this paper.
