JEWISH AFRICA: A CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHIC SURVERY, LEG #3: I am headed back to Africa on July 30 for a relatively short 5 1/2 week trip. Johannesburg, South Africa will be my base from where I’ll sojourn to Kenya and Uganda (a combined trip) and to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). I’ll also be doing more work in and around Jo’burg, most notably to Kimberley and Bloemfontein which I had to cancel on the previous trip due to the theft of my camera gear. All being well, I also hope to do short jaunts to Swaziland and Botswana. Be sure to visit NEWEST PHOTO GALLERIES, my JEWISH AFRICA BLOG, and FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK to keep up-to-date with my project.

JEWISH AFRICA LEG #2 TRAVEL ITINERARY: I will spend fully 2 months (January 30 ~ March 29) working in the Jewish communities of the southern Africa region. Countries include SOUTH AFRICA, ZAMBIA, MAURITIUS, MOZAMBIQUE, and NAMIBIA. About half that time will be spent in South Africa, including a near three-week drive from Johannesburg to Cape Town stopping in as many “country communities” and larger towns as possible. I’m busy organizing logistics and a timeline now.
