Samy’s Camera welcomesGil Garcetti to discuss the book he created, Protea: The Magic and the Mystery. In Protea, photographer Gil Garcetti approaches the still-life subject with the same intimacy and insight he brings to his human subjects. These dramatic images reveal the unique personality of each bloom. Come share an afternoon with Gill and see for yourself how the endless beauty, magic and stunning still-life photos will pull you in for days on end. Gil will have copies of Protea available for purchase and signing during this event. Samy’s Camera will be giving a special gift to all those who purchase Protea: The Magic and the Mystery.
Gil Garcetti is known in Los Angeles in many ways. Yes, as the father of our Los Angeles city mayor, Eric Garcetti. But also as a former UN Cultural Ambassador for UNESCO; as president of the California Science Center Foundation; for his teaching at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and as the Los Angeles County District Attorney during some of that office’s most famous cases. Gil has had ten photos books published since 2003 and his latest book, Protea: The Magic and the Mystery, will be the main topic of his talk with you. This effort is Gil’s first still life proect and given its reception, it probably will not be his last. Gil has had photo exhibitions around the world including twice at the United Nations and at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Gil will also talk about his journey from DA to photographer. The sponsors and attendees at his previous talks always comment about how inspiring and informative his talks are for so many people who attend his presentation.
