Here are some very nice images from workshop participant Richard Ross. Richard joined Art Wolfe on two international workshops this year. First to Japan and the beauty of Japanese culture, and then onto the amazing landscape of Iceland. Thanks for sharing, Richard.
Australian businessman-turned-photographer Denis Glennon traveled to China with Art in April and his observations have been published in Better Digital Camera Magazine. More exciting yet, Denis & Art are planning a comprehensive seminar & workshop series in Australia & South Africa for March/April 2012. Details will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
We had a long day of driving today as we headed back to Reykjavik from the south coast. Late last week the Kafla volcano had a small eruption under the ice, and glacial meltwater rushed down and washed out the bridge on the highway. We were forced to alter our route somewhat and had to retreat through the highlands. Our photographic surprise for today were horses. There’s never a dull moment when these spunky little guys are around—they are truly a horse in a pony-sized package!
The Solstice Parade is a great Northwestern tradition. Every year it takes place in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, the self-styled “Center of the Universe.” It is a rich and colorful venue and a great place to take photos. Last year I was able to get a few shots that made it into my book coming out this fall “Dogs Make Us Human.” Now I am working on a new book which is a look at children from all over the world. It wouldn’t be complete without a photo or two from the center of the universe!
