Over the course of Art’s 30-year career he 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 are a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve them all.

Travels to the Edge is an intimate and upbeat series that offers unique insights on travel, nature, cultures, environmental issues. Exhibition visitors will experience remote and awe-inspiring places through Art Wolfe’s lens, whether documenting the behavior of wild grizzlies in isolated coastal Alaska, marveling at the dreamscapes of the Bolivian Altiplano, navigating fjords in the icy oasis of South Georgia Island, or capturing unique cultures on the edge of extinction in Ethiopia’s Omo Valley.

Art’s television program, “Travels to the Edge,” launched on May 5, 2007, and currently airs on public television stations in 47 U.S. States and on 35 of the top 40 market stations. The series has reached 73% of U.S. households via analog stations, translating to over 171 million potential viewer impressions per episode.

Art Wolfe has been awarded with a coveted Alfred Eisenstaedt Magazine Photography Award as well as named Outstanding Nature Photographer of the Year by the North American Nature Photography Association. The National Audubon Society recognized Wolfe’s work in support of the national wildlife refuge system with its first-ever Rachel Carson Award. He is a member of Canon’s elite list of renowned photographers, “Explorers of Light,” Microsoft’s Icons of Imaging and Fujifilm’s Talent Team. Wolfe has released over sixty books, including the award-winning Vanishing Act and Edge of the Earth – Corner of the Sky.
