A day with Art Wolfe
« on: June 03, 2010, 11:09:44 pm »

Just returned from a pleasurable day sitting on the sidelines as Art Wolfe basically spent the day "thinking out loud" as he dissected his visual images...it almost felt like walking along with him as he discovered his "shots"...There was a good turnout...some seemed lost or heat fatigued, but I for one found it to be invigourating and enlivening...he seemed to be developing new assignments for himself even as he was enthusiastically dicussing current projects...I do not know in what capacity he will be added to the Lula family this fall, just feel very lucky to be alive in these times when artists share so generously...I thank Lula for placing Art Wolfe on my radar in the first place...this is a landscape of learning and seeing and feeling...Thankyou Mr. Reichmann

Agree completely. I also attended and found the presentations and discussions very engaging and stimulating.

I'll add my agreement as well, in hopes of encouraging anyone who is considering attending one of the remaining presentations but is undecided.  I'll refer to Mr. Peterson's accurate appraisal:  http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/aw.shtml rather than restate the content.  I attended the talk in Toronto and left amazed that Art talked from 10 am to 5:30 pm with few breaks.  Not only was that impressive from a physical endurance perspective (anyone who has presented a multi-hour lecture knows what I mean), but also the content was excellent throughout (I don't know many people I could listen to for 7 hrs. and not be bored); even my wife, who is not a photographer per se, left inspired.

I haven't seen him talk, but I bought and watched his "Travels to the Edge" TV series after a couple of people here on the forum recommended it, and enjoyed it immensely.  (I travel a lot, and am always looking for new places to go!)

I agree, great talk.  And as much as I'm a gearhead, it's really refreshing to spend an entire day completely focused on the images, and their creation. I was also floored by his body of work.

As mentioned however, the talk in Quincy, MA was great, but it was really hot in there.  I was engaged, but I also felt like it was a trip to the sauna.  I wonder if the A/C just wasn't working.

Lisa, regarding the tombs at Myra: you got it slightly wrong. It wasn't looters breaking in, it was residents breaking out; the air in there got hellishly fetid. And with all those parts for extras going begging, and even the off-chance of meeting Angelina, who'd stay at home?

OK, Rob, I think you've been watching too many zombie/vampire movies lately  .  But thanks for browsing the photos - it's nice to know that somebody's looking at some occasionally.  That's one of the ooold ones, though, from back in my film days.

Noone else here probably has any idea what you're talking about...

Lisa, I watch your pictures with great pleasure. If you keep going this way, you will beat the N.G; is there a place that you have not been yet?
Well, if you look for something different, here is a destination idea: Yakutsk. Siberia.
The coldest city in the world, average temp january -41 C.
