The show Daniele Tamagni & Africolor is currently on display at NYC’s Danziger Projects.

The gallery says:

“Africolor” – the exhibition – looks at the connections in photography between Africa, color, and color photography. While Africa as a subject has attracted and inspired photographers since the invention of photography, because of the obvious financial and technical issues involved – photographing Africa in the 19th century was largely a European endeavor. By the middle of the 20th century, however, photography both as a business and a means of artistic expression was beginning to flourish across the African continent.

Photographers include Malick Sidibe, Lolo Veleko, Samuel Fosso and more. The exhibit is on view until September 10, and more info can be found here. Spotted at OkayAfrica.
