Rhythms of Creation:
A Family's Impressions of Indigenous Peoples of the World




Andrew Cameron Bailey

As a British-born South African, photographer/filmmaker Andrew
Cameron Bailey had the good fortune to grow up among the colorful and
diverse cultures of southern Africa during the 1950s and 1960s. He
studied the sciences at the University of Natal, in the Indian Ocean
port city of Durban, then pursued a second degree in anthropology
while teaching chemistry and mathematics at the College of Pharmacy
and Chemical Technology. In 1969, Andrew left South Africa partly in
protest at the apartheid regime then dominating the country, and
sailed across the Atlantic to the New World, where he lived in Santa
Cruz, California, New York City, the Caribbean, and the Hawaiian
Islands.  He continues to be deeply interested in all things
indigenous, including tribal drumming, music, art, dance, the plight
of the surviving Bushman communities in the Kalahari Desert, and the
progress of the world's youngest democracy, South Africa. He is
presently working on a documentary film about the future of humanity:
"In Search of the Future." He is the father of five highly creative
children, and lives a rather nomadic lifestyle, with bases in Sedona,
Arizona, and Los Angeles. He has been photographing indigenous
subjects in black and white and color since 1968.
