Art Wolfe Captures Etna Lava Flows; Recent Books Receive Honors


Art Wolfe’s latest published works, “The High Himalaya” and “Africa,” are on the bookshelves and receiving great reviews and awards from around the world.

In recent travels, Wolfe flew to Sicily during a 72-hour journey to record Mount Etna on film when it erupted last fall. He was able to capture unique perspectives and amazing nightscapes of lava flows.

Wolfe’s “The Living Wild,” which is in its fourth printing, was a winner in the Art/Photography category at the 2001 Western U.S. Book Design Awards. Among other honors, the book was named Winner-National Outdoor Book Awards, named one of the ten outstanding books of the year by Independent Publisher, and named winner of Germany’s Bild Der Wissenschaft award for the most beautiful science book in the “Aesthetik” category.
