Art Wolfe


Art Wolfe's photographs are a superb evocation of some of the most breathtaking spectacles in the world." - Sir David Attenborough

Over the course of his 30-year career, Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations. His stunning images interpret and record the world's fast-disappearing wildlife, landscapes, and native cultures, and act as a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve the very subjects recorded in Art's images. His photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition and perspective.

Art's Photographic Mission

Art's photographic mission is multi-faceted. His vision and passionate wildlife advocacy affirm his dedication to his work. By employing artistic and journalistic styles, he documents his subjects and educates the viewer. His unique approach to nature photography is based on his training in the arts and his love of the environment. Hailed by William Conway, former president of the Wildlife Conservation Society, as "the most prolific and sensitive recorder of a rapidly vanishing natural world," Art has taken an estimated one million images in his lifetime and has released over sixty books.

Published Photography Books

In 2000, Art founded Wildlands Press (WP) to publish The Living Wild, which has sold more than 50,000 copies worldwide and garnered awards in Applied Arts and Graphis. In 2001, WP published the award-winning Africa, and in 2003, Edge of the Earth Corner of the Sky. In 2004, Edge of the Earth Corner of the Sky captured significant publishing awards, including IPPY (Independent Publishers), Benjamin Franklin (Publishers Marketing Association), and National Outdoor Book Award. Titles for 2007 include On Puget Sound. Past titles include Vanishing Act, The High Himalaya, Water: Worlds between Heaven &l; Earth, Tribes, Rainforests of the World, The Art of Photographing Nature, and Light on the Land.
