Abstract:

"Art Wolfe, one of the world's most celebrated nature photographers, recounts the stories behind the images of forty years of expeditionary photography capturing vanishing and rarely seen lands, creatures, and populations often at the edge of extinction. Legendary photographer Art Wolfe recounts the stories behind the images of forty years of expeditionary photography capturing vanishing lands, creatures, and peoples at the edge of extinction. Wolfe and co-author Rob Sheppard transportv readers, while carrying on a dialog about photography, technique & process, world travel, close calls and photographic opportunities both taken and missed. From the rich sights and smells of the Pushkar Camel Fair to the exact moment when a polar bear and her cubs leave their arctic den, Photographs from the Edge represents what Wolfe has lived for: the instances when circumstance, light, and subject miraculously collide to form an iconic image. Many of these photographs can never be duplicated as cultures and landscapes are transformed and wildlife diminishes or disappears all together. Whether discussing his photographs of endangered lands, peoples, or wildlife, Wolfe regales readers with the stories behind the photographs and helps them experience life on the world's most unique photo safari. Photographs from the Edge is a lifetime of experience distilled into a rich photographic education"--
