George DeWolfe’s photography is filled with seeming contradictions of abstract/real and known/unknown issues that seem to fuse and resolve within his singular images. They are supremely of the moment.
George’s images are born out of the penetrating awareness of photographic moments that are highly personal, intuitive and sublime. Set simultaneously in conversation with the structures of ancient Chinese landscape painting and Western landscape genres, George’s artistic practice incorporates ideas from Buddhism and Gestalt Psychology, and encourages photographers to recapture a certain perceptual naiveté that we inadvertently unlearn as we grow. George’s publishing credits include At Home in the Wild, a book on New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Digital Photography Fine Print Workshop, and most recently, B&W Printing. He was a Senior Editor at View Camera and Camera Arts for 18 years.
His most recent honor was Award for Artistic Excellence presented by The National Park Service. George has photographed for many environmental organizations over the past 40 years: Appalachian Mountain Club, Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, Mass Audubon, National Park Service, America Rivers, and Friends of Acadia. He is a member of the American Alpine Club.
