Meet the Author

Dudley Edmondson has spent the last 15 years photographing nature and wildlife subjects around the country for natural history publications in the United States and Europe. Dudley proudly carries on a family tradition started by his great-grandfather Monteith Vance, a portrait photographer issued a photography license by the state of North Carolina in 1919. Four years ago he began work on Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places in an attempt to find other African Americans around the nation who shared his love for nature and the outdoors. He found several, many of whom he now considers friends. Not until 2005 had he ever been on an outdoor adventure entirely in the company of African Americans; it was a life-affirming experience that he will never forget. “Nature without question is for everyone. It knows no race, creed or gender and is cheaper that any therapist you could ever hire.”
