His work has appeared in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Harper's, GQ, New York Magazine, and n+1. He lives in Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia, where he is at work on his next book, In Trees. About Tony Foster Born in Lincolnshire, England, artist-explorer Tony Foster finds inspiration in the wild places of the world, which he paints en plein air. Since 1982, he has undertaken a variety of watercolor "journeys"—painting projects based on a philosophical or environmental theme—that often involve multiple expeditions over many years. His subjects range from mountains, rivers, rainforests, deserts, coral reefs and Arctic icebergs to such iconic natural areas as the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest. Hiking, rafting, kayaking or canoeing to find the perfect painting site, then camping outdoors for weeks at a time to make his paintings, Foster frequently faces challenging weather and difficult conditions. His paintings, complete with diary excerpts and "souvenirs", document his experiences in wilderness and his commitment to its preservation.
