Henley-based Charity, Serian UK is hosting an exhibition ‘Africa Proud’, a selection of stunning images by UK photographer Bob Webzell based on the poems of African poet Wayne Visser at the Old Fire Station Gallery from 17-21 December. Serian UK supports Noonkodin Secondary School, situated in the remote Maasai homelands of Northern Tanzania.
Bob Webzell ARPS EFIA is a co-founder and Secretary of Serian UK, but is also known widely across the home-counties as an international photographer and lecturer with ‘Africa in his blood’. On a visit to Tanzania he found an un-credited verse of poetry which he traced to a Zimbabwean poet, author and academic, Wayne Visser. That resulted in a successful collaboration and exhibition ‘African Dream’ in 2013 which was a huge success in Henley. ‘Africa Proud’ is a further celebration of the people, landscapes and wildlife of this luminous continent involving Bob’s stunning images and Wayne’s haunting words.
Founder member and Chair of Trustees Janine FitzGerald and Treasurer Dave McEwen, both from Henley-on-Thames, are two of nine Trustees who are committed to the progress and success of the school.
