Safari from the Heart Personal Expressions of Safari Africa, Clarke, Gary K.
5 Clarke, Gary K. Safari from the Heart Personal Expressions of Safari Africa
Topeka Author 2016 1st Edition; 1st Printing Softcover New 
This elegant presentation features some of Gary's most iconic photographs from his 140 safaris, coupled with his heartfelt expressions of the safari experience. Each select color image (from film) is exactly as Gary composed it through the lens of his camera on safari -- no darkroom hocus-pocus, no computer photo shop, no digital manipulation. Each is printed full-frame, in proper proportion - no tricks, true image, real Africa. The images range from giraffes in silhouette on the Serengeti to Cowabunga safarists inside an immense baobab tree, from the spectacular African sky with dramatic cloud formations at sunset to a magnificent bull elephant towering over Gary's puny canoe on the Zambezi. Gary's thoughts and feelings reflect a deeply personal introspection, and are just as compelling as his photographs. They are eloquently expressed in poetic phrases creatively superimposed over the images, and reveal his strong emotional rapport with Africa. Included is his Safari Prayer, which evolved in a series of stages and came to fruition over numerous safaris. SAFARI from the heart is one signature of 16 pages, yet one may return to it again and again and spend hours studying the photos in detail, as well as contemplating the significance of the words. It measures 10 x 14 inches and is printed in full color on 100lb. Glossy paper. It makes a great gift and a distinctive keepsake. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; Unpaginated pages
