AFRICA: DAVID BRUCE PHOTOGRAPHS
Born in South Africa, photographer David Bruce is best known for his personal work on the Ju/’hoansi Bushmen of the Kalahari, a unique combination of art and social commitment born out of a rare level of contact with the subject. His extraordinary photographs shed light on a sensitive culture that is in the process of being lost to the world. An artist and meticulous craftsman, Bruce founded the Ju/’hoansi Development Fund, supporting education and sustainable development in the Nyae Nyae Conservancy, Namibia. Last year, he produced a limited edition book of his portraits, raising funds in support of the Ju/’hoan people. Please join us for cocktails at Sotheby’s to see David Bruce’s photography and hear his story. Melissa Biggs Bradley, founder of Indagare, will be conducting a brief Q&A with Bruce. Thursday, October 9, from 6-8. Sotheby’s, 1334 York Avenue (at 72nd Street), Manhattan. RSVP 212-606-7375.
