The ‘Metaphoorto’

From yesterday to 10 October:

I call it a ‘metaphoorto’ 
It was first exhibited during the UNESCO exhibition ‘The Invisible-Visible’ in Oslo (Norway) last year together with two other pictures of me. Selected by curator Georgeta Negrini (former photography curator of Prado in Madrid) amongst work of 128 other photographers around the globe. Since Oslo ‘African Feet’ is travelling the world (via UNESCO). From August 9 to October 10 of this year a print  is on display during the exhibition ‘Contemporary Art Africa’ in Ilienworth, Cuxhaven, Germany. I’m one of the 70 chosen artists of the African Continent.
Prints on 300 gsm Hahnemuller paper of 120x80cm are made available for sale. This exhibition is curated by Samuel Fleiner.

African Feet

This picture (exhibited at the UNESCO  exhibition ‘The invisible visible’ in Oslo, Norway sometime ago) say a lot about Africa.

For me it’s a meaningful picture.

And it was shot by co-incidence. What happened? I did a model shoot. In between the model polished her nails (and spoiled a bit – enlarge the picture). After that the stylist started working on the model’s face; out of boredom I just made a shot of her feet. And they tell a story, don’t they?
