This beautifully illustrated video is only a small fraction of a 22 minute version. It was captured the very early days of Hobart's career as a wildlife photographer.
Nearly all scenes in the video show the moments leading up to corresponding still images that are now part of his catalog of high quality archival prints.
The Music was composed by Alan Williams.
On his exhibition's opening day Graham Hobart was interviewed by Dr. Samuel Gerace (curator of photography at the Booth Western Art Museum)
The audio is a bit rough but this lecture is a rare look into the thoughts and emotions that motive Hobart.
It includes some biographical content as well as glimpses of some of the other work he has done in his nearly 4 decade career.
Nowadays Graham Hobart captures his images with mirrorless cameras that have no shutter and are therefore totally silent but this video shows the type of equipment he used in his early days. Capturing extremely high quality infrared images back then was not easy and failure was quite common.
It is not meant to show off as much as inform viewers about the efforts Hobart made to increase the chance of success on a photo safari.
