OKAVANGO – Photography Exhibition by Robert Spooner


This is where Robert Spooner – a Strange Fellows’ regular, veterinarian, and photographer at large – spends time each year, sharing his expertise with the locals and their animals. His love of animals and the people he encounters is apparent in his stunning photographs.

“I’ve had an interest in photography since my teenage years, and always had a camera close at hand. With the advent of digital photography and no phone without a camera, my passion has grown. While I haven’t pursued this interest professionally (yet), in recent years I’ve been able to combine photography with my veterinary career, and with volunteer work I’ve done as a veterinarian both in Canada and abroad. I always keep an eye on my surroundings, paying close attention to changes in lighting and trying to see things from different perspectives, trying to make the ordinary intriguing. As this collection will show, my trips to Botswana have left a huge impression on me. The people and the wildlife there are incredible, and over the past five years the Okavango Delta has started to feel like a second home.” – RS
