Wilderness is at the core of a healthy society. Wilderness, above all its definitions, purposes and uses, is sacred space, with sacred power, the heart of a moral world... It’s an attitude and a way of life with a spiritual ecological dimension.
— Michael Frome

Michael Wewer

Michael Wewer photographs wild spaces with the eye of a passionate conservationist. As a student under the legendary Michael Frome, who first urged him to teach, Wewer developed and taught courses in environmental photography and human impacts at Western Washington University. For fifteen years he has brought students from over 20 countries into the wild areas of the Pacific Northwest, to share the wonder of the natural world and to impart a passion for wilderness protection and photography. 

Michael's work showcases pristine areas in the hope of giving viewers a sense of place, planting seeds of gratitude for such a vast number of places to escape to, and inspiring action to protect these incredible natural gifts.
