This unforgettable presentation centres on the Himalaya region and reflects Art Wolfe’s most personal statement to date. Between Heaven and Earth is a grand adventure tracing Art Wolfe’s formative years and development as an artist. Following a life-changing experience in Asia, the presentation centers on the Himalaya region of India, China, Nepal and Bhutan – locations that triggered his imagination and wonder towards a path of blending his creativity and art with photography while documenting the wild world. In its entirety, including photographs and video, the lecture will run for over two hours.
WORKSHOP – THE ART OF COMPOSITION

Utilizing his formal training as a fine art painter and art education instructor, Art Wolfe will dissect visual image examples and explore in depth what makes a compelling and emotionally engaging photograph.
Attendees will come away inspired and with tangible ideas and approaches for taking their photography to fresh and inspired levels.
