Venice, CA – On June 6, The G2 Gallery will premiere Roberto Cabral: Fragile Strength. This new collection features endangered African animals with a fresh artistic approach and presents Roberto’s foray into conservation photography.

Roberto’s interest in photography began as a high school hobby and has fueled a passionate lifelong love affair with photography. A few months ago, Roberto traveled to Africa for the first time to honor his father’s love of travel. Seeing the big cats, majestic elephants, powerful gorillas and towering giraffes ignited a fervor for conservation photography.

“Roberto’s images out of Rwanda and Kenya are very unique,” says Curator Monika Basse. “The black and white fine art elements Roberto incorporates in his art elevate these photos and the underlying message behind them.”

“In great strength there is vulnerability, and in vulnerability, strength,” says Roberto. “This collection shows the raw power of the natural world and its fragility.”

The opening reception for Roberto Cabral: Fragile Strength, along with Susan McConnell: On the Shoulders of Giants, will be held Saturday, June 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvres and valet in front of the gallery. All proceeds from admissions and art sales will be donated to Wildlife Conservation Network’s Elephant Crisis Fund. Please RSVP to rsvp@theg2gallery.com.
