The Kickstarter for the Photographers Against Wildlife Crime book that includes work by both myself and my esteemed colleagues is steadily moving towards its goal, but can use your help. Please share and contribute if possible. https://goo.gl/2ooimq

We want to end the demand for wildlife products. We will launch this book in May 2018 followed by a Mandarin edition for sale in China.

I'm pleased to share that a 48"x72" fine art print of "Amazon Scarlet Ibis (#222), 2017" (which you may have seen earlier on my instagram feed this year) will be in the Catherine Edelman Gallery booth at Expo Chicago from today thru the end of this weekend. Seen here, it is being installed with white gloves by CEG staffers Tim and Juli.

It makes a striking presence in any space, even inside the Navy Pier! Unfortunately I won't be able to drop by as I'm still in the DRC for a bit longer, but if you're in Chicago, please stop by and have a look at it and all the rest of the work by artists with the Catherine Edelman Gallery.

I'm off to the Democratic Republic of the Congo for a commission from Greenpeace on issues related to the preservation - and increasingly, desctruction - of its peatland rainforest. The DRC's rainforests - one of the world's most biodiverse regions - cover an area nearly three times the state of California, so there will be plenty to photograph. I'm excited and thankful for the opportunity that this assignment will bring more attention to an overlooked and neglected ecosystem....

This photo is an aerial view of an affluent of the Tshuapa River east of Mbandaka, almost exactly on the equator that I shot for Prince Charles's Rainforests Project in 2009.

I believe that the true beauty of the natural environment is that it is something we can all understand, appreciate and come together to help protect.

I'm thrilled that one of my Greenland photos was chosen to be displayed at the entrance of Art Miami.
If you aren't familiar with it, Art Miami is the leading international contemporary and modern art fair: it is open till Dec 4th.
I wish I could see it in person. If you are there, stop by Catherine Edelman Gallery (booth B300). Photo by Juli Lowe.
Please feel free to share.

The New Yorker magazine published one of my photos for an article by Elizabeth Kolbert about the melting of Greenland in this week's issue.

Pick up a copy if you have a chance! It's a double page spread and looks fantastic. And if you can't, please read the piece about the early impacts of global warming.

The shrinking of Greenland’s ice sheet is triggering feedback loops that accelerate the global crisis. The floodgates may already be open.

Greenpeace has selected me as a finalist for their biennial photo contest! Have a look and if you like my project please give it your vote! Feel free to share.
If I win, I'll spend next summer photographing the impacts of global warming on the Greenlandic ice sheet.
