Randolph Community College’s Photographic Technology department is hosting an exhibition of photographs by alumnus John Rolland. The show, titled “South of the Sahara: Portrait of Africa,” is an exhibition of photographs celebrating life in Sub-Saharan Africa and exploring the uncommon richness of this vibrant land.
Rolland will be at RCC on Monday, Oct. 1, from 3-4 p.m., in the Photography Imaging Center to give a brief presentation on his work. The presentation is open to the public.
Rolland graduated with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Commercial Photography from RCC in 2005. From 2005 to 2008, he photographed for several North Carolina-based magazines and did annual report photography for nonprofit organizations. From 2008 to 2011, he worked in West Africa as a photographer for Mercy Ships, an international charity, aboard the surgical hospital ship M/V Africa Mercy.
