Photographic author Andrew Antone talks about his first book “Africa”


SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Photographic author Andrew Antone stopped by News Channel 3-12 Monday morning to talk about “Africa,” a photographic safari through the African animal kingdom and Atone’s first book.

Antone took the photos in March 2022 while honeymooning with her husband in Africa.

“These unique photographs represent a moment in time when the world began to open up again after a global pandemic: flora and fauna flourished in the absence of humans, once again reclaiming the land that is the soul of these animals,” Antony said.

The 456-page book takes readers through the waterways of Botswana’s Okavango Delta and the grasslands of Chobe National Park, following in the footsteps of elephants, zebras, and giraffes.

Antone has been a member and supporter of the Santa Barbara Zoo for over 15 years and her husband, Patrick, is a zoo volunteer turned employee. As part of the “Africa” ​​book launch, a photography exhibit will be on display at the zoo through January 31, 2023. The exhibit will feature 32 limited-edition giclées, with Antone donating 50% of the proceeds from the girclées to the zoo

“The conservation of our natural world has never been more critical than it is now. I hope that through my book you can experience African wildlife as if you were there,” said Antone. “But more importantly, I hope it can serve as a compelling reminder of what we stand to lose if we don’t care about the animals, lands and oceans that are essential to our planet.”
