“Trophies Through the Lens: African Wildlife Safari Images, 2015”
Jack Kenner, internationally recognized and award-winning fine art photographer, filmmaker and author will exhibit his latest images from Africa taken during safari travels in 2015. In addition to Kenner’s fine art images, which include many threatened and endangered species, the exhibit also features over 30 selections from his students’ photography art, also taken on conservation and photography safaris.
Although Jack Kenner has traveled the world capturing prized wildlife images in his unique close-up style, Africa has always compelled him to return. In 2015 he kicked-off a series of custom photography safaris for adults, and eco-orientation and stewardship awareness camps for middle schoolers and their parents. According to Kenner “I believe our only hope for saving our planet’s endangered species is through educating our children. My goal is to focus on teaching the next generation, fostering a passion for wildlife preservation at an early age.” But having the understanding and desire is not enough, claims Kenner. “Once they learn, they need to then be able to communicate what they believe. Learning the art and science of photography, then creating powerful imagery, gives them a visual voice; a way to express emotion and passion through the lens.”
“TROPHIES THROUGH THE LENS: African Wildlife Safari Images, 2015” displays over 50 photographs taken in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Kenya. The opening reception for the exhibit is open to the public and will include short films of African scenes, African rhythms from the Memphis Drum Circle and refreshments, including select South African wines. The exhibit will remain on display at WKNO through February 29.
