Wolfe and co-author Rob Sheppard transportv readers, while carrying on a dialog about photography, technique & process, world travel, close calls and photographic opportunities both taken and missed. From the rich sights and smells of the Pushkar Camel Fair to the exact moment when a polar bear and her cubs leave their arctic den, Photographs from the Edge represents what Wolfe has lived for: the instances when circumstance, light, and subject miraculously collide to form an iconic image.

Photographs from the Edge is a lifetime of experience distilled into a rich photographic education"-- Provided by publisher.
