What captivates me is how natural light of the cosmos slices across texture and contour, exploding through fields in ranges of color deeper than our sense of sight. ... As we stop to absorb beauty surrounding us, we discover a life filled with more of it.

Oakland, California (PRWEB) February 27, 2014

Award winning documentary filmmaker and fine art photographer Diallo Mwathi Jeffery’s works are on display this month until February 28, 2014, on the third floor rotunda gallery at the Oakland City Hall, 1 Frank H.

Jeffery is a graduate of Oakland Unified Public Schools and Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, and studied at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA.

After attending a stop-motion film camp held by Mosswood Park recreation center in Oakland, Diallo was hooked on visual arts. Jeffery used a borrowed video camera to shoot other films, studied photography under high school teacher Jackie Begrin-Marston, and landed an intern position with noted KTVU newsroom videographer, the late Willie Kee.

Jeffery previously exhibited his photography at Joyce Gordon Gallery, and the Anfilo Café and Gallery in Oakland. Jeffery was employed as a senior television producer for the Monterey County Office of Education, and taught photography and filmmaking in Alameda and Oakland Public Schools.
