Peace Corps Images from Bolivia 1967-69 is a reflective documentary of black and white photography by Mickey McGuire. In the late 1960’s, Mr. McGuire served in the Peace Corps in Rocha Rancho, Bolivia, a region populated by Quechua Indians, the descendants of the Incas. As the lone volunteer assigned to their small village 9,000 feet in the Andes, he documented the faces of this community as well as the projects he led.
Mr. McGuire has been a Tracy resident since 1971, and is well known in the community as a celebrated educator and as a photographer serving the Tracy Camera Club. Between his graduation from Stanford University in 1967, and entering graduate school at the University of Florida, he spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer. In 2014 Mickey returned to Rocha Rancho after forty-five years to continue his relationship with the Quechua Indians.
Elizabeth Parrish’s Digitally Enhanced Photography reflects automotive, architectural and landscape themes in colorful works of art. The photos are energized by Parrish’s desire to see her subjects in deep and often brilliant levels of saturated color.
Elizabeth Parrish is a self-taught photographer from Stockton. Ms. Parrish holds a B.A. in English with teaching credentials from San Francisco State University. In 2008 she began to study drawing and watercolor, learning the skills of composition and lighting that would cultivate her specialization in digital photography.
