Rudy realized a lifelong dream of Africa when he adventured through Tanzania, Kenya,
and Zanzibar, connecting with the places more deeply than he could have imagined.
Rudy was able to capture in his photographs a glimpse of the way he saw Africa: the
innate beauty of its genuine people, their vibrant cultures, the vastness of the
landscape and its rich wildlife - all part of the amazing experience of Africa.
How do you capture the essence of Africa on paper without using up every cliché in
the book? No other continent comes close to it for scale, variety and pure, raw impact.
Africa’s natural history alone would make a dozen visits worthwhile – where else
on earth can you fall asleep to the sound of lions roaring, or watch a million flamingos
take off from the waters of a remote soda lake? Parts of Africa boast scenery so
spectacular they’ll damn near blow your mind, but the essence of this incredible
continent isn’t in any desert, mountain or lake. It’s the spirit of the people –
pushing, shoving, sweating, dancing, singing and laughing – that infects so many
visitors with a travel bug so powerful they’ll never stop coming back, sometimes
against all sense or reason.
