Local photographers share documentation of Antarctica

Photographers Roger Lewis and Mindy Oberne will be the guest speakers at the next meeting of the Nevada County Camera Club, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Unity in the Gold Country Spiritual Center, 180 Cambridge Court (off Whispering Pines) in Grass Valley. The free event is open to the community.

Roger Lewis has had a love of photography since he bought his first camera at age 10. As photo editor of his high school and college newspapers and as an intern with United Press International in 1977, Roger has had a strong background in documentary photography. “Every photo should tell a story” has always been the focus of his imagery. Roger and Mindy Oberne have been together for more than 20 years and have dedicated the last three years to exploring and documenting the beauty and wonder of Antarctica. With global weather changes and the end to the Antarctic treaty ahead, Roger and Mindy say this may be the last chance to photograph the untouched continent. Members will also share images of the assigned subject,“Fall.”

The Nevada County Camera Club meets the fourth Monday of the each month.
