Portraits of Namibia


March 07, 1996|By John Dorsey

In 1993, photographer Ken Royster received a Fulbright-Hays scholarship to travel and take pictures in Namibia in southwest Africa. Works from his trip are now on view at Art Matters Gallery at Savage Mill.

They show, the artist thinks, that despite suffering, the Namibians reveal a noble nature: "These photographs serve as a visual manifestation of my response to wonderful experiences I shared with these gallant and proud people."

Royster's work is part of a three-person photography show that also includes images by Cid Collins Walker and Karen Schlossberg.

At Art Matters, Historic Savage Mill, Carding Building, Suite 110, 8600 Foundry St., Savage, through March. 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Call (301) 498-2820.
