LCMA is excited to present the photography of Charlene Edwards. Edwards has spent about three years of her life journeying to some twenty African countries photographing this “dark continent.” She feels a magnetic pull to keep returning to explore her home away from home — exotic, vibrant, dramatic, dangerous — a continent of astounding diversity that is life-changing. In her new photo exhibit “AFRICA – Birds, Beasts ‘n Peeps” she shares images from her recent three months of travel in Angola and South Africa.
Edwards is a professional photographer, guest lecturer, award-winning author, world traveler, environmental advocate, and explorer. Edwards’ work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, museums, and galleries including the Museum of Natural History, the International Center of Photography and most recently in the Umbrella Arts Gallery in NYC.
Her honors include the America’s Heroes Freedom Honor, ForeWord Magazine and Benjamin Franklin book awards, the Photography Book of the Year from the American Authors Association, and the Gold Book Award for best photography book from the Military Writers Association of America.
