New patron for Rotary club
The Rotary Club of Brisbane Water has announced the appointment of a new patron.
Club president Ms Cherie Simpson said the club was "delighted to announce" that photographer Mr Ken Duncan had agreed to be patron of our the club.
"Ken is well known as the pioneer of limited edition photographic art in Australia," said Ms Simpson.
"Ken is truly passionate about his craft.
"Always striving for excellence, he travels extensively throughout the world in search of the stunning panoramic landscapes for which he is best known.
"Ken does with his own unique style and his exceptional ability to capture the very spirit of a place at a given moment in time."
Ms Simpson said: "Over 20 years ago, a respected indigenous elder gave Ken Duncan some advice: If you really want to know someone, you need to walk a while with them."
"Since then, Ken has been working with the indigenous people of central Australia, helping wherever possible.
"In 2010, Walk a While Foundation was established with the primary objective of walking alongside indigenous people using creative and visual arts as common ground.
"They provide youth with equipment and skills to tell their stories and to equip them to engage in meaningful employment opportunities for the future."
