Visions of Africa is an exhibition composed of the latest works of renowned photojournalist, explorer, and Craghoppers ambassador, Levison Wood.
Acclaimed wildlife sculptor, Rosamond Lloyd, will also be exhibiting in support of the conservation charity, Tusk Trust, and the exhibition will be taking place at La Galleria, Pall Mall, from 6th – 12th December.
The exhibition will show striking images from Wood’s four month journey and adventure through Africa, in which he went along the route of the Nile. Alongside this will sit Lloyd’s unique and breathtaking bronze sculptures which depict some of the animals she and Levison have encountered, including African elephants, hippos, rhinos, and lions.
The exhibition will be a fantastic celebration of Africa’s wildlife and culture alike. All of the exhibited works will be for sale, with 20% of proceeds going to Tusk Trust, who initiate and fund conservation, community development, and environmental education programmes across Africa.
Having taken all his images using a Leica ‘M’ digital rangefinder, Levison’s images are a combination of portraiture and raw photojournalism, ultimately depicting the striking diversity of modern Africa. The photographic journey begins in the tropical rainforests of Rwanda and continues to travel along the lifeblood of the continent, all the way to the Sahara desert.
Sculpting in either clay or wax and casting in bronze using the ancient last wax process, Rosamond draws her inspiration from Africa’s wildlife (in particular the relationship between parent and offspring) she captures the true spirit of each animal masterfully.
The exhibition will be free of charge and open to the general public between the 6th and the 12th December
