Dudley Edmondson

    Sorry, there are no products in this collection.

    As a young man, Dudley Edmondson discovered the power of nature and its ability to heal both the mind and body. This led Mr. Edmondson on a lifelong path to follow his passion and instill his love and knowledge of the outdoors in others and inspire a personal understanding and respect for everything nature offers. Mr. Edmondson has worked with numerous communities across the county to help urban youth and youth of color to experience nature and the beauty of the outdoors.

    Mr. Edmondson was one of the first to highlight the involvement of African Americans in the public lands system. Unsatisfied with the representation of people of color among those in his outdoor pursuits, he created a set of Outdoor Role Models for the African American community by writing his landmark book, Black & Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places (Adventure Keen Publications, 2006). His latest book entitled What’s That Flower: A Beginners Guide to Wildflowers (DK Publishing, London 2013), details the more common wildflowers of the eastern United States.

    For three decades Mr. Edmondson has photographed nature and wildlife across the country. His work has been featured in numerous galleries and over 100 publications, ranging from the state-specific flora and fauna field guides by author, Stan Tekiela, to “Bird: The Definitive Visual Guide,” by Audubon (DK Publishing, London). Mr. Edmondson’s photographic series, “Northern Waters,” is currently on exhibit at the Minnesota Marine Art Museum.
