Levison Wood is a writer, photographer and explorer who has travelled across 80 countries around the world on assignment. His most recent expedition to walk the length of the River Nile was documented in the popular Channel 4 television series ‘Walking The Nile’ and his book of the same name was a Sunday Times bestseller this year. Levison has embarked on another lengthy expedition crossing the Himalayas this summer, with a further documentary series and book planned for early 2016. He writes for the Sunday Times, The Independent and the Daily Mail and is a frequent public speaker.
Rosamond Lloyd is one of the UK’s leading wildlife sculptors, nominated for Wildlife Artist of the Year and affiliated sculptor to Tusk Trust. Passionate about the natural world and the protection of endangered species in particular, she supports conservation projects through the sale and auction of her work. Rosamond’s sculpture has featured in national and international press and she has exhibited at some of London’s foremost galleries and venues. Her work is cast in one of Britain’s most prestigious foundries and her finely detailed limited edition sculptures are held in private collections worldwide.
The show featured Levison’s images from his journey tracing the Nile, his striking photographs are a stunning combination of raw photojournalism, reportage and portraiture, depicting the extraordinary diversity of modern Africa. From the tropical rainforests of Rwanda across open savannah teeming with wildlife, enormous swamps and the Sahara Desert, this is a visual journey of modern discovery that will change perceptions of a misunderstood continent. Levison’s photography made its public debut alongside existing and new sculpture by Rosamond, featuring some of the diverse species observed by Levison during his expedition, faithfully captured in bronze using the ancient lost wax casting process.
