Wildlife Photography Program at Del City Library

Early in the new movie “The Happening” we see on a high school science class blackboard the warning, “If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live."  This warning is credited to Albert Einstein, who never really said it, but it’s still legitimate to think about the relationship between humans and nature’s wild animals.

On Tuesday, July 29, 2008, the Del City Library, 4509 SE 15th, is presenting “Wildlife Photography,” with award-winning wildlife photographer Kim Sullivan.  The program will be from 6:30 to 7:30pm.

  “Who better to present a session on wildlife photography than Kim Sullivan?” said Del City librarian Sam Weehunt.  “Anyone could spend just a few minutes looking at samples of her work on her website and see that she is tops at what she does. 

“And it’s not just a matter of talent with her,” Weehunt added.  “She also cares passionately about the animals she photographs and their places in the world.  Natural conservation isn’t just a sometimes-thing with her.”

Sullivan is a University of Oklahoma graduate and has been a professional wildlife photographer since 1999. 

 “Nothing lives in the moment like a wild animal,” she wrote on her website.  “They are truly present in every moment—a lesson for us all. It is a privilege and a gift to be around them and to learn from them and ultimately to be able to share their life, dynamic, and beauty with others."

“Wildlife Photography,” with Kim Sullivan is suitable for all ages and free of charge.  For more information, call the Del City Library at 672-1377.
