Frank Pictures Gallery proudly presents “African Passion: Painted Bodies and Beyond” featuring the work of internationally renowned photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher. These photographs are a selection from their Annenberg Space for Photography exhibit “No Strangers: Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World”.
Beckwith and Fisher have done more than anyone to awaken the world’s appreciation of everything African from adornment to the rapidly vanishing ceremonies. The exhibition spans their three-decade relationship with the African continent across 270,000 miles and through remote corners of 40 countries in exploration of more than 150 African cultures. The Beckwith-Fisher images are the result of a long, enduring and deeply respectful relationship with African tribal people.
