Art Wolfe – NEW Book Wild Lives – A Conversation With Art

Art Wolfe is one of my great friends.  We have traveled to the corners of the planet together, leading photo workshops.  Art is a true photo artist.  His background is art, and it influences how he pursues his photography.  He has published over 100 books in his career, and I am proud to have many of them in my library and on my coffee table.  I don’t know any photographer who is constantly working on several book projects like Art.

This new book weighs around ten pounds and has over 350 pages.  Essays in the book that are quite moving and informative are by Gregory Greene.  The amount of images in the book is staggering.  I have never seen a book with so many different types of wildlife in one place.  The color reproduction is perfect, and the paper selection is opaque and adds richness to each image.  This is a one-of-a-kind book.

If you collect books like I do, then this book needs to be in your library.  You can order the book from Amazon or Art Wolfe’s Store.

Wild Lives rejoices in the beauty, ferocity, and revival of Earth’s endangered wildlife through the lens of legendary photographer Art Wolfe.

Wild Lives is a celebration of the extraordinary diversity of species that inhabit the planet. Some are common, some rare, and many are conservation success stories, species that have been brought back from the edge of extinction. Over his forty-year career, Art Wolfe has photographed many species that were once on endangered species lists but are now flourishing (such as the bald eagle and humpback whale). These recoveries are an uplifting testament to the resilience of life when it is given a chance.

From amphibians and reptiles to mammals and birds, Wild portrays an earthly aesthetic millions of years in the making. Wolfe has photographed more than 500 species in 60 countries, and the never-before-seen work in Wild forms is the most comprehensive, globe-spanning book of photography he has ever published.

Accompanying Wolfe’s photos are essays by renowned conservationist Gregory Green. Focusing on the why of wildlife conservation and recovery, Green discusses the redistribution of animals and their habitats dating all the way back to the Ice Age.

Together, Wolfe and Green have crafted a monograph that will not only shed new light on the creatures that surround us, but on humanity as a species as well.

I look through this book and see many places where I was with Art when some of these images were made.  They bring back great memories of truly incredible moments.

Photography is my passion and has been for 50 plus years. My career in photography has allowed me to travel the world, meet some of the most interesting people on the planet and see things I could never have dreamed of. My goal is to share the passion of picture taking through photographs and teaching with as many people as I can, hoping it brings them as much joy and happiness as it has me. I do this through, this site, as well as Rockhopper Workshops, and other projects, as well as teaching as Artist In Residence at the Indianapolis Art Center.
