Synopsis: This is the first book on Africa for which Ms. Oprah Winfrey has chosen to write a "Forward" and that is because Gordon Clark has a unique insight into the soul of Africa and its wondrous workings.Gordon lived as a street child and is a graduate of the opporessive apartheid-driven reform school system that existed at the time of his youth. He struggled, and as a young man, assimilated with the disenfranchised masses-hence a spiritual bond was formed.His concern for his fellow man has manifested into this profound and poetic essay. Gordon aspired to create a conduit-a link of communication-to relay to the modern world the vast innocent human potential that exists within Mother Africa and has done so."Transitions South Africa" is a presentation of visual prayer and positive reflection, highlighting the true joy and spirit of perseverance. The myriad of captured visual miracles of Mother Earth and its children depict nature and human kind in the humble traditional existence endemic to indigenous African people and their transition to urban existence.
About the Author: Gordon Clark is a native South African, celebrated photographer and television commercial director-now respected and loved outlander, having resided in the United States for more than 20 years. During this time period, he maintained close ties to his Motherland, expounding the natural beauty and human circumstance so vividly through the camera lens
