Print of the Month February 2016

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.

Travels to the Edge: Music in the Australia Episode

Aboriginal men perform an ancient dance near the coast of Arnhem Land on Australia's northern border. A permit is required to travel in this region of Arnhem Land, an Aboriginal center. The quality of ancient art on rock walls, as well as the modern Aboriginal art and customs, continually amazed me during my visit.

We often get asked about the music that is featured in Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge episodes. We have found a treasure trove of information!

Here is a list of composers and musicians featured in Australia: Arnhemland and the Kimberley. Many of them don’t have websites, but you can find their music on various internet music sites.
