“There’s a stunning clarity and vibrancy in Art Wolfe’s wildlife portraits, which are careful, often haunting, compositions.” — The New York Times Book Review
Over the course of his 30-year career, Art Wolfe has photographed on every continent and in numerous locations. His stunning images interpret and record the world’s fast-disappearing wildlife, landscapes and native cultures, and are a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve them all. His photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition and perspective. His unique approach to nature photography is based on his training in the arts and his love of the environment. I recently photographed with Art in China and my observations on this amazing photographic experience are on Art’s blog: click Art Wolfe’s Blog. The article ‘Photographing China with Art Wolfe’ was published in Better Digital Camera, Australia; to read, click: Photographing China with Art Wolfe.
