Outstanding alive color photography that wakes me up when resting in my recliner. 206 pages of intense color images of Africa. Every so often, I love lighting my pipe, reaching for this book, sit back, relax, and slowly flip the pages. Pete Turner understands color and you will not be disappointed with the captivating photos in the book.
The photographs take place starting in 1959 when Pete was on a seven-month safari through Africa and continues on with photographs from 1960,1964, 1969, 1970,1974, 1984, and 1995.At the beginning of the book, there is a map that shows the areas he traveled in 1959. Some of the areas covered in the book include: Transkei region, South Africa, Swaziland, Lake Manyara, Tanganika (Tanzania), Valley of the Kings, Egypt, Ndebele, South Africa, Sossusveli, Namibia, Amboseli, Kenya, Egypt, Krueger Park, South Africa, Victoria Falls, Rhodesia (Zambia), South Africa, Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania, Khartoum, Sudan, Giza, Egypt, and the Nubian Desert, Sudan. The subjects include: animals, portraits, buildings, plants, roads, everyday life of people, environment, landscapes, close-ups of native jewelry, etc. If you love Africa then you will love this book. The text and photographs are by the photographer, book design by Massimo Vignelli, and an introduction by Gordon Parks.

Written By Joelcy Kay – Curator
Every piece of art, crafts, or textiles, hanging on my walls or ceiling tells a tiny passage of my life. Most of it was acquired during my travels. Many of these treasures are damaged whether because they were broken on arrival, as the pieces were tightly stuffed into my backpack, or weathered by the unforgiving Florida tropical humidity. But in the end, they are my precious processions and they are part of the stories I tell. It feels good to have rugs hanging from the ceiling, masks on the walls, and drinking my morning coffee thinking of the mugs’ tale. The point here is that art has a lot to offer each one of us; ART IS VERY PERSONAL!
The NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY offers that personal experience as the individual has the opportunity to buy the art from the creator and by doing so a new event to remember is born. When you hang the work of art on your wall there is a story behind it; an artist you now know and follow. And instead of the usual “I purchased this at “WWW(BIG BIG ART STORE).COM” the connection enriches the emotional value of your art piece.
WHY DISPLAY YOUR ART AT THE NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY?
The gallery is designed to connect the art seekers and collectors with artists directly. We offer artists a COMMISSION FREE / CONTRACT FREE online platform to sell their creations and engage with their clients using portfolio pages that are engaging with large images and a dramatic black background.
NO MIDDLEMAN is a boutique ART GALLERY; individuals browsing our archives and portfolio pages are relaxed, not pressured to sign up, agree with website terms, or maneuvering out of pop-up windows.
For details regarding participating in the NO MIDDLEMAN ART GALLERY please contact Joelcy Kay the curator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
