Overview

Focusing his lens on the elusive subject of water in all its myriad forms, Art Wolfe has created an extraordinary book of unprecedented beauty and poetry. Here is a work that celebrates the simplest and most abundant element on Earth as it exists in nature's most dramatic settings.

Traveling throughout the country and across continents, Wolfe presents a stunning variety of photographs: glaciers in Alaska, Beluga whales in Canada, snowy landscapes in Japan, reefs in Bora Bora, ocean waves in Maui, and King penguins in Antarctica. These spectacular photographs are complemented by essays on the folklore, poetry, and religious significance of water, as well as the impending danger if our natural resources are not protected.

Water, the source of all life, is at once elusive and pervasive. From a simple dewdrop on a blade of grass to the turbulence of the raging ocean, Art Wolfe shows us the world as we have never before seen it. For nature lovers and photography fans, Water: Worlds Between Heaven and Earth is a unique and magnificent tribute to the glorious wonders of our planet.
