In the continued efforts to upgrade our websites- the new Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge site is now live! The new site is responsive to tablets and phones, and trailers to the episodes can be watched on any device. Each episode is sorted by geographical region, season and disc for easier viewing. There is an interactive map so you can view episodes based in different areas. And, we are continuing our work on finding funding for additional seasons of the show! Take a peak and let me know what you think. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you find any errors or mishaps.
With the publication of Earth Is My Witness, 2014 was a highlight year in my career. So much energy and time was put toward this mega project that to see it finally in published form gives everyone at Art Wolfe, Inc. an enormous sense of accomplishment. Earth Is My Witness was launched at an event at the California Academy of Sciences.
While my travel schedule slowed down somewhat, I did find myself in India twice—particularly in Ladakh, searching for the elusive snow leopard. I saw several, but at great distances. Regardless, it was a tremendous experience in a rugged and elemental landscape. Next up were Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park, Alaska’s Glacier Bay and Katmai National Parks, and Norway’s Svalbard Archipelago. After teaching a couple workshops in Oregon and Washington, I headed off to Kenya, Ethiopia and Papua New Guinea to make a series of specials for Australian TV. In November I joined Denis Glennon and Frans Lanting in South Georgia Island and Antarctica. Then Iceland’s Bárðarbunga volcano beckoned and I answered its call. It’s been erupting since August and shows no sign of slowing down. My final trip of the year to East Africa straddled 2014-2015.
On the awards front, Human Canvas was selected for the Graphis Photography Annual. Earth Is My Witness was named a “Best Photo Book of the Year” by American Photo magazine. I was honored be included in the UK magazine Professional Photography as part of their 100 Photography Heroes special issue.
Travels to the Edge continued to air around the world, including a first-time run in France as Voyages Au Bout Du Monde Avec Art Wolfe.

Now is the time of year for the Pushkar Camel Fair and here is a look back when I was filming there for my TV show Travels to the Edge. I did an audio postcard for PRI’s The World, which they used as an answer to the Geo Quiz.
