Educational Travel Conference
Last week Longitude attended the annual Educational Travel Conference in St. Louis. Besides meeting with our current valued travel partners we met a host of new travel companies and look forward to partnering with them in the coming year, all in the name of getting books into the hands of travelers. The Educational Travel Community was the privileged audience of several talented keynotes, including author and anthropologist Wade Davis.
The Earth Is My Witness
“The Earth is my witness,” Siddhartha said, and with that acceptance of the Earth and acknowledgement of what is owed to it, he became the Buddha. The phrase is a fitting title for Art Wolfe’s latest book, The Earth Is My Witness, an artful celebration of the planet's fast-disappearing landscapes, wildlife and cultures as captured by the lens of the veteran photographer. Having studied both art and anthropology, Wolfe’s work displays a diversity of animal life, natural landscapes untouched by modernity and intimate portraits of indigenous peoples.
