The Robin Rice Gallery is pleased to present, Botswana, Zack Seckler’s first photographic exhibition.

In Botswana, Zack Seckler captured the boundless, raw beauty of Africa as seen through less than 500 feet above ground. From this vantage point, the animals, vegetation and salt ponds appeared magical. “As an artist, the experience was visceral and life changing.”

“Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will.” Seckler’s opportunity to create Botswana followed a 2009 commission in the same region. He was given unfettered access to an ultra-light aircraft and expert pilot. “As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.”

Zack Seckler was born in Boston and took to his craft after graduating from Syracuse University in 2003. He later moved to New York City and began a career in photojournalism that took him around the world covering stories for the international media.

The exhibition will be open till February 23.
