Artist Statement, James Capo:

James Capo is an award-winning nature and wildlife photographer, photographing fauna in regions as diverse as Arizona, Alaska, and Africa. For this exhibit, James features images from safari in the southern-African nation of Botswana, in the Chobe River region along the border of Botswana and Namibia. The area is noted for its biological diversity, and for being home to the most dense concentration of elephants on the continent. His images are presented in B&W Fine Art style printed on gallery-wrap canvas.

James studied journalism and photojournalism at the State University of NY, then worked as a writer/photographer for various publications as he worked toward a second degree in Theology. Upon receiving his B.A. in Theology he was asked to serve in ministry, and that has been his primary career ever since. He has continued in his passion for the outdoors and photography, though, becoming a certified Rock Climbing Instructor and Guide, a Youth Camp Director, and “Challenger” program leader for Young Adults, mentoring leadership development through outdoor adventure activities. He is also active in the photography community, speaking to local clubs and serving as a judge in photo competitions.

Artist Statement, Steve Dell:

Beauty is all around me, waiting to be discovered. This can be a grand landscape, a simple insect on a flower, an architectural wonder, or the simplicity of a child's smile.

I enjoy discovering new places and returning to familiar ones to discover fresh, exciting, and new angles of exploration.
I am inspired by observing and studying the works of other artists. My own style is ever evolving, both behind the camera and in front of the computer screen post-processing an image.

While I am moved by the color of images, I can be equally motivated by black & white images.

Steve is a popular speaker at local camera clubs, and frequently judges photo competitions. He currently leads the Tucson Photoshop Group, and is a past president of Club Camera Tucson.
