We all have our heroes in photography, and Art Wolfe is one of mine. We first met in the late 80s at the start of my Hasselblad career. We don't catch up to each other very often, but he's one of those people you meet and feel like you've known all your life.
I just received my copy of Earth is My Witness, and it's stunning. The book is starting to ship now. Here's an opportunity for you to bring forty years of Art's life documenting the world into your collection.
What I love the most about the book is the diversity of Art's work. Most of us think of him as a wildlife/landscape photographer, but that's only part of his story.
I caught up to Art for a very short conversation. It was just enough for a First Byte and to hear his description of the book and what makes it so unique at this point in his career.
