Award winning photographer publishes book on Maun

MAUN: Stuart James Arnold, a Maun based international award winning photographer, has published a photo book titled Mothers and Children of Maun, a Safari Frontier Town in Ngamiland, Botswana.

Images from book are currently on exhibit at the Nhabe Museum. The exhibition, which started May 7 and ends June 4, 2013, features the photographer alongside painter Roger Brown and porter Ompatile Sebuelo. The trio's exhibition will then move to Thapong Visual Arts Centre in Gaborone from June 11 to July 5.  In August last year, the photographer won an international award with environmental portraits contained in the newly launched book.

The associate member of the Royal Photographic Society in Britain writes in the foreword of the book, "living in Maun, we pass all too often the captivating images of everyday people going about their daily lives. As we pass, the images blur to become a simple familiar backdrop. However, one should take the time to stop and meet people contained within this anonymous backcloth and appreciate our wonderfully assorted and complex society."
