Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Joe Bonita on ‘Africa’
Our very own Joe Bonita will be presenting photos and commentary from his travels in Kenya and Tanzania in 2012, and in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe in 2015. Included will be images of flora, fauna (you know, plants and animals), scenics, street scenes, villagers and village scenes, open markets, schools and other local activities. Also, you will see sunsets, waterfalls, animal families, local dancers and, of course, some images of carnage, which you’d expect in rural Africa.
Joe is a self-taught photographer who’s been taking pictures at one level or another for a long, long time. He has been a member of Focus Camera Club since 2008. He’s traveled extensively in Europe and made forays to Canada, Japan, China, Australia, New Zealand, Antarctica, Africa, South America and, most recently, Iceland and Mexico. These travels have provided him with a wealth of subject matter for his photos. Some of his images have been manipulated for what he considers artistic effect. That’s because, in his view, photography isn’t only about showing the viewer what was there. He believes that the highest calling of all art is its ability to show others the world both as you see it and as you’d like it to be. Joe is also a member of The Littleton Fine Arts Guild that operates the Depot Art Gallery just outside downtown Littleton and displays his work there. He has also regularly been invited to display his photos in the Littleton Museum’s Eye of the Camera competition.
