I just went to a lecture at the University of Washington given by Art
Wolfe. It was truly amazing. I really can not re-cap the experience. You have
to love photography and be present to really get the full effect.. I am generally
not one that appreciates photos of wildlife. I find it too literal and boring and
would prefer to look at abstract paintings or black and white photos that capture
a texture. I was impressed by his knowledge of light and his applications towards
his passion, landscapes. I am especailly awestruck by his life... he basically has
the pleasure of travelling to the farthest reaches of the earth to grab photos not
yet captured. He follows the moon to exotic less known places. He fits perfectly in
the Pacific Northwest.
There was a photo of lava that I felt would work with my home's decore. I may go and
track it down at his studio.
In search of lava I found some of the slides he discussed in detail. Here are the
ones I found to be simply amazing...
