North Street Gallery in Ashburton will be showing a unique and breathtaking photographic exhibition by Emmy award winning photographer and film cameraman Toby Strong. Toby has worked with the biggest names in wildlife filming and documentary, including David Attenborough, Ben Fogle, Bill Bailey, Stephen Fry, Michaela Strachan and Billy Connolly.

We are delighted to announce that Toby has given one of his pictures, ‘Massai Necklace’ (shown above) to Devon Life and we are running a competition to win this beautiful signed print. This image was taken whilst Toby was filming the BBC’s Orphan Diaries, the story of orphaned baby elephants. He spent many months with these orphans in Kenya. Two young Massai boys had a rescued a baby elephant which had fallen into a hole and been abandoned. A few months later Toby and the production team brought the boys back to the orphanage to see the happy, thriving youngster. They dressed up in their finest, which including the beautiful necklace you see pictured.*

The exhibition is currently in show until 4 April and the Gallery is open from 10am-5.00pm Monday -Saturday and also by private appointment. All of the images on show will be available for purchase. African Parks is a non-profit organisation that takes responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks in partnership with Governments and local communities It’s a charity very close to Toby’s heart and he will be donating half of all profits from the exhibition to the charity. The print will be unframed and is part of a limited edition of 5 prints. The value is £295 and will be signed by Toby.

  • My dad was born in the 1920s and grew up in Malawi. He travelled Africa is his youth on a motorbike, he had many massai friends and crazy adventures. He died when I was 5, but for me his legend still lives on. This photo is amazing, I am definitely going to be visiting the exhibition. Thank you. Jackie lake
