Get your tick­ets now! The world-famous pho­tog­ra­phers, Car­ol Beck­with and Angela Fish­er, land in Fri­day Har­bor on August 22 to share their spell­bind­ing adven­tures in Africa.

Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher

The renowned trail­blaz­ing pho­tog­ra­phers share their sto­ries and review their stun­ning pho­tographs and book, African Twi­light Van­ish­ing Rit­u­als & Cer­e­monies.   The pre­sen­ta­tion cel­e­brates Africa’s cul­tur­al her­itage and cre­ates a “pas­sion­ate por­tray­al of the splen­dor of human cre­ativ­i­ty.”  Beck­with and Fish­er record the dis­ap­pear­ing diver­si­ty of the sacred rit­u­als of birth, death, courtship, lead­er­ship, and heal­ing before it is too late.

The pio­neer­ing doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­phers have record­ed African trib­al cul­tures for 45 years–a world that is quick­ly van­ish­ing before our very eyes.

Their talk will take place at the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre at 100 Sec­ond Ave N. at 7 pm.  Tick­et can be pur­chased only at

Gen­er­al admis­sion tick­ets are $35, muse­um mem­ber tick­ets are $30, and stu­dents pay $10. SJCT will have open seating.

A book sign­ing in the lob­by fol­lows the talk. Books may be pur­chased at SJIMA and held for you for the event.
