Inspired by Parente’s travel to Ethiopia in 2011, this photography exhibition focuses on the abstract of light as it was experienced by the artist during his stay in Bishangari on Lake Langano.  Bishangari is an eco-site, a natural wilderness, a wildlife sanctuary, secluded beach and lodge.  It is a natural retreat of breathtaking beauty that combines five ecological zones;- wetlands, beach and lake, the forest, the dry pumice rocks and the acacia shrub. Parente has captured nuances of this beauty in these stunning photographs without using any digital manipulation. Also showing are recent photography works by Miwa Nishimura.
