Wolfe’s career has been described as “multi-faceted”, involving wildlife advocacy, art, journalism, and education. According to William Conway, former president of the Wildlife Conservation Society, Wolfe is a “prolific and sensitive recorder of a rapidly vanishing natural world.” In the last 30 years, the public has viewed Wolfe’s work in more than sixty published books, including Vanishing Act, The High Himalaya, Water: Worlds between Heaven & Earth, Tribes, Rainforests of the World, and The Art of Photographing Nature. **
The program began with the making of 13 episodes released in 2007. By 2009, 26 episodes were filmed in nearly as many locations, including Patagonia, Madagascar, Alaska, New Zealand, and India. Some of the specific subjects addressed include glaciers of Alaska, and sacred tattoos created by Maori artists. The program is produced by OPB, distributed by American Public Television and aired on Create.
In 2015, Wolfe appeared in the Australian television series Tales by Light.***

Now, I admit, I would like to post some photos taken by Art Wolfe. More than anything, I would like to spend a week with Mr. Wolfe, on an expedition somewhere to see and learn how this master photographer takes photos. Of course, it may take some doing to get permission to post some of his photos here on my blog. But, do remember that many of his books are available on Amazon.com.
I, am an affiliate marketer of Amazon.com, and so, maybe the one thing I can do is to offer all of my readers here, an opportunity to buy his books, and see what I mean. Perhaps you too, will fall in love with this great photographer.
