Elizabeth Sunday, Bay Area photographer presents her photos of Africa

I have yet to visit the Museum of the African Diaspora (MOAD), and I find the work of this Bay Area based photographer a good reason to make the short trek. She has a unique method of photographing her subjects and because she has lived with these indigenous groups for extended periods the photos also shows her understanding of them. Having the photographer present her almost all-career work in trying conditions is a special event AUE photographers should find interesting and admirable. This is a onetime presentation.

Museum press release: 
Elisabeth Sunday will present her work from the past 26 years from her time living with indigenous groups in Africa. On a walk through of her gallery, she will share her experience and techniques for capturing the images in her Taureg Portfolio.

For 26 years, Bay Area-based photographer Elisabeth Sunday has found inspiration in the peoples, cultures and traditions of Africa. She has traveled alone and has lived among various indigenous peoples documenting how they sustain their traditional ways of life in a rapidly changing world. Sunday is widely recognized as an art photographer with a distinctive vision.  Utilizing a flexible mirror of her own design, Sunday photographs her subjects' reflections in a way that blends and dissolves the boundaries between figures and their environment.

The museum fee is $10 for adults; $5 for seniors (65+)

The artist's presentation is from 2:00-4:00 including a book signing. I'm not staying for the book signing in order to have our group discussion from about 3:30-4:30 at a nearby eatery. Those who want to see the other museum exhibits should see it before the presentation. There will be a museum group joining us.

    2 from AUE and 5 from the museum group witnessed a great presentation from Elizabeth Sunday. She passed her photos amongst the audience, explained her process, initial inspiration, the technical challenges, the politics of the regional tribes, and her next creative challenge in sculpture.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
