Art Wolfe's sensitivity to his subject and his craft of photography are once again showcased in this stunning color collection of images for nature and photography lovers. Focusing his camera on the many shapes and forms of the elements — earth, air, fire, and water — Wolfe brings all his famed sense of composition, pattern, and light to expose our natural world's ever-changing beauty: the sensually shaped earth of the red rocky outcrops in America's Southwest; the vertical shifts of silver-slivered earth that form the mountain spine of South America; the mystical, metallic reflection of light on a pool high in the Canadian Rockies; the storming force of a waterfall in Africa. Through his emotive lens readers get a deep appreciation for and education in both the environment and photography. The reader's experience is further impassioned by Craig Child's four essays on the elements.
