VISIONS OF AFRICA is an exhibition of new works by renowned photojournalist and explorer Levison Wood and acclaimed wildlife sculptor Rosamond Lloyd in support of conservation charity Tusk Trust taking place at La Galleria, Pall Mall from December 6th.

About

Visions of Africa brings together striking images from Levison Wood’s nine month journey through Africa along the route of the Nile and a series of unique bronze sculptures by Rosamond Lloyd depicting animals she and Lev have encountered including African elephants, rhinos, lions and hippos, in a visual  celebration of Africa’s culture and wildlife. All of the works are for sale with 20% of proceeds going to Tusk Trust, a charity at the forefront of initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa.

 

Taken using a Leica ‘M’ digital rangefinder, Levison’s images are a stunning combination of raw photojournalism, reportage and portraiture, depicting the striking diversity of modern Africa. His photographic journey begins in the tropical rainforests of Rwanda and travels along the lifeblood of the continent all the way to the Sahara desert in a visual odyssey of modern discovery.

 

Sculpting in clay or wax, at her Oxford studio and casting in bronze using the ancient lost wax process, Rosamond draws her inspiration from Africa’s wildlife, in particular the relationship between parent and offspring. Rosamond captures the true spirit and sense of each animal with accuracy and empathy. Rosamond is a Tusk Trust affiliated sculptor and has spent time in Africa studying her subjects up close in order to work from life as much as possible.  With sculptures ranging from a hippo mother and baby to an elephant calf playing with a Stork and a herd of buffalo, her works are finely observed and painstakingly modelled.
