IMAGES OF A LIFETIME (article first published : 2001-02-20)

Opening on February 24 at the ICC (International Convention Centre) is Images of a Lifetime. The exhibition provides a “walk through the life and times “of L Ron Hubbard, author, engineer, adventurer and founder of Scientology.

The exhibition follows the man from his childhood in Montana to early manhood in China and eventual maturity in England. Rare pictures taken by Hubbard during his travels in the East during the 20s are interspersed with pictures of him as a pilot in the early days of flight. His career includes a stint as a National Geographic photographer and a respected member of the science fiction writing community. He was also a screenwriter in the early days of Hollywood, a painter, poet and musician.

There are also post-WWII pictures of the hospitals, the site of his early studies into the mind which culminated in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health. Hubbard's contributions to criminal reform, drug rehabilitation, education, the arts and the field of philosophy are also chronicled in the exhibition.

His printed works include more than 3,000 lectures, 84 films, three encyclopaedic series and more than 500 hundred novels and short stories.

ICC Durban was chosen as the venue for the exhibition because of its state-of-the-art architecture and design combined with equally state-of-the-art technology within an eye-catching building. The exhibition is open from 09h30 till late. Admission is free.
