Tanzania Talk with J.K. Putnam

Join photographer J.K Putnam as he shares stories and photographs from his trip to a small, mountain community in Tanzania on Friday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Jesup Memorial Library. Putnam will focus on the Mazinde Juu School for Girls and the community that surrounds it and is supported by it. He will also feature pictures of the animals, landscapes and people he encountered during his travels to and from the Usambara Mountains.

Putnam specializes in editorial and outdoor photography. His images have been published in dozens of photography and design books and have been featured by major online editorials such as Wired and The Guardian. Since 2014, he has been shortlisted every year in multiple categories by the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition held annually by the Natural History Museum in London. He teaches photography workshops year round on Mount Desert Island and has a seasonal gallery of his work in Southwest Harbor.
