Florida nature and conservation photography exhibit to be hosted by USF Sarasota-Manatee

On Friday, August 27 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee will hold a reception for a photography exhibit by Eric Zamora, conservation and nature photographer and winner of the International Conservation Photography Award.

The exhibit, entitled “Life on the Edge, the Story of Florida’s Nature Coast,” will be located on the second floor at USF Sarasota-Manatee and will remain open until November 15.  Zamora’s photography features landscapes, wildlife and people in Florida’s natural habitats.

“Mr. Zamora’s photography brings together the Sarasota/Manatee community’s appreciation for art, nature conservation and education,” said Dr. Arthur Guilford, Regional Chancellor of USF Sarasota-Manatee.  “The exhibit will feature some of Florida’s most threatened, remote and spectacular landscapes and we’re looking forward to sharing his fine art portrayal of our state.”

Images included in the exhibit will feature Zamora’s 36-mile hike through the 750,000-acre Big Cypress Preserve, the remote coastline of Cape Sable in Everglades National Park, and the Santa Fe River, only a few miles from Eric’s hometown of Gainesville, FL.
