The Southwest: Zion and Canyon De Chelly

The American Southwest is a geological time machine. Its bizarre and beautiful rock formations are the result of eons of erosion. In Utah's Zion National Park, Art explores surreal slot canyons carved from wind and water and encounters the strange rock spires-hoodoos-that punctuate the landscape like giant exclamation points. In Arizona's Canyon de Chelly, he goes by horseback with a Navajo guide to discover petroglyphs hidden in tribal lands. With its brilliant light, red desert rock, cobalt blue skies, golden cotton woods and white-barked Aspens, the American Southwest is a photographer's playground.



Upcoming Airdates

Patagonia: Torres Del Paine

Torres del Paine Park in the far southern Andes of Patagonia is remote and inaccessible. For adventurers it's the "edge" destination. Art's images tell a story of nature at its wildest - of a place where jagged peaks scrape the sky, icebergs catch the light, guanacos watch for pumas and Andean condors rule the skies.

Alaska: Katmai Coast

The remote Katmai Coast is the largest intact stretch of uninhabited coastline left in North America. Art takes advantage of the long days of Alaska's short summer in Katmai National Park, spending time with the largest population of grizzly bears in the world. Joined by bear biologists, he gets up close and personal with Ursus arctos to provide a fresh look at the behavior of these powerful predators in the wild.

Africa: Madagascar

Eighty million years ago, Madagascar split off from Africa. Separated from the mainland, the sturdy and lucky creatures that reached Madagascar's shores intact took off on a wild and bizarre evolutionary journey. Art documents Madagascar's most famous inhabitants: it's a who's who of the weird and wonderful, including dancing sifakas, rainbow-colored chameleons, a forest of upside-down trees and a spiny desert.

Alaska: Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

America's Serengeti? Wilderness or wasteland? Art rafts down the icy Kongakut River to document America's last pure and untamed wilderness. He chronicles the desolate, yet abundant beauty of the tundra and the rugged landscapes of the Brooks Range. He turns his lens on the delicate birds and animals for which the Refuge is a vital habitat and intersects the great Porcupine caribou herd on its annual migration to the coastal plain.

Peru: Manu

It's a place where clouds conceal rare birds, animals blend into the forest, predators hide in the shadows and native peoples are disappearing. Manu, in southern Peru, belongs to the largest area of protected rain forest in the Amazon. Art goes downriver and encounters spectacular birds, animals and peoples of the Amazon, who together are struggling to survive.
