International documentary photographer and explorer, Daryl Hawk, will give a special photography presentation and lecture based on his most recent expedition to the northern, central and southern highlands of Ecuador. There, Hawk embarked alone, on a 1,600 mile journey, following the ‘Avenue of Volcanos’ across the Andean mountain range, exploring and photographing rarely seen sights along some of the highest roads in the Americas.
Among the wonders he captured in photographs are geological formations, cloud forests, high altitude lakes, indigenous cultures, marketplaces, pre-Hispanic ruins, and some of the highest volcanos in the world.
Hawk will share his experiences and images on Wednesday, May 16 at 7 p.m. at the Wilton Library.
For the past 30 years, Hawk has explored some of the most remote and isolated places in the world, telling stories with his camera. He is a member of the Explorers Club, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a member of the Professional Photographers Association. There is no charge to attend, but registration is recommended. Register online or call 203.762.6334.
