DARIEN, Conn. -- Award-winning photographer Henry Dallal will speak at the Darien Community Association at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19.
Dallal was born in Iran in 1955 and moved to London from Colorado in 1994. His father gave him his first camera at age 9, during an outing in the mountains of Iran, and his mother taught him to ride a horse in those early years. This was the genesis of Dallal 's passion.
Since then, he has photographed stallions, British, Indian and Middle Eastern pageantry, and royals, sultans and emirs. His non-digital photography has been exhibited in Blenheim Palace, Kensington Palace, the Naples Museum of Art, Royal Geographical Society, Smithsonian Institution, Balmoral Castle and Windsor Castle. His work has been sold in galleries and Christie’s auction house.
He has published several award-winning coffee table books on his work with his latest being, "Addressing Climate Change," which has a foreword from Ban Ki-Moon, secretary general of the United Nations. Dallal will show portraits he was commissioned to take of the British royal family, including Queen Elizabeth, and the British Household Cavalry.
The presentation will include a question-and-answer session.
This event is $10 per person, or free for Darien Community Association members. Reservations are requested and can be made at dariendca.org , or by contacting the association at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-655-9050.
