9781608877140: Migrations: Wildlife in Motion

A powerful collection of expeditionary photography documenting migratory patterns of wildlife across the planet through the lens of Art Wolfe, one of the world’s most celebrated wildlife photographers.

Inspired by the imaginative spatial designs of Dutch artist M.C. Escher, photographer Art Wolfe traveled the globe in search of similar patterns in nature. The result is a book of remarkable wildlife images that captures both the beauty and the poignancy of animals on the move. Migrations draws the reader into the energy, motion, and enduring spirit of life on this planet. The stunning images capture the delicate balance of our ecosystem, conveying the primordial stirrings that prompt a flock of snow geese to head south, monarch butterflies to bejewel a forest of trees, or a colony of Indian bats to snuggle in tight hibernation, while also serving as a telling reminder of life’s fragility. It carries a message of both celebration and conservation. Kenya, Japan, South Georgia Island, Trinidad, the Canadian Arctic, and the Ozarks are among the locations that create the backdrop for Wolfe’s dramatic artistry as he showcases “classic migrations,” the beauty of their trek, the splendor of the patterns they create, and the cycles they are compelled to repeat.

About the Author:

Over the course of his 40-year career, award-winning photographer Art Wolfe has worked on every continent and in hundreds of locations. His stunning images interpret and record the world’s fast-disappearing natural treasures and are a lasting inspiration to those who seek to preserve them all. Wolfe’s photographs are recognized throughout the world for their mastery of color, composition, and perspective, and his photographic mission is multifaceted — art, wildlife advocacy, and journalism all inform his work. He lives in Seattle.

From Booklist:

To apologize, it seems, for digitally altering certain images, photographer Wolfe says this is an art book more than a nature book. He's being oversensitive to possible criticism, but he's not being untruthful. The big, frequently two-page images of scores of migrating single species in this wider-than-high album are indeed artistic. In their perspective-crushing repetition of animal shapes, they reflect Wolfe's confessed inspiration by Austrian artist M. C. Escher's drawings of such things as stairs that mount in conflicting directions, delighting us with their "optical illusions." Many will find Wolfe's pictures more satisfying than Escher's, though, because they provoke curiosity about what their animal subjects are doing. Unfortunately, Sleeper's text, which comes at six-page intervals to inform us generally about the depicted species, doesn't satisfy on this score. Fortunately, Wolfe's own remarks at the end of the book in regard to the photos often do; when curiosity gets the best of you, flip back there while paging through these artful nature photos. Ray Olson
