Local photographer Judy Benson LaNier’s new show, African Birds, opens at The Photographers’ Gallery At The Ashland Art Center on Friday, August 2nd during the First Friday Art Walk. She is showing her colorful photos of African birds. During her many trips to Africa as a photo safari leader, Judy discovered African birds are wide ranging in size, coloring, and habits. From the smallest yellow and green Bee-eater to the largest black and white Ostrich, the birds display their grandeur and variety for all to see.
Whether in flight or resting on ground or branch, birds hold delight and wonder for earth-bound humans. In these photos Judy expresses her fascination with birds and invites the viewer to fly away with beautiful avian creatures. Judy’s work has been featured in books about Africa and Oregon and she has published eight books of her own photography. Judy is a graduate of Ashland High School and OSU, and is an award winning photographer.
