Wilson, of Madison, Wisconsin, likes KAP “because I can produce never-before-seen views of familiar subjects. The combination of kite and camera permits me to take my camera to places where only birds and bugs go.” He has had 85 magazine covers and more than 1,500 of his images published in magazines, newspapers, calendars, brochures, and on post cards. His recent book Hanging by a Thread: A Kite’s View of Wisconsin has brought him critical applause and numerous speaking engagements. “Although I KAP on average once a week, I have never lost the sense of play, experimentation, discovery, and adventure in the combination of kite and camera,” he says. “My unique vantage points will never be duplicated, exactly. That sense of singularity makes the experience rewarding.”
