“African Mosaics I”

I was pleased to find a collection called African Mosaics I posted on Flickr by photographer, Sulaiman Ellison. I worked with Sulaiman and other photographers on an exhibition called “Hidden Voices” in the mid-1990s at the 843 Studio Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. I was always impressed with his work on Africa.

The portfolio of forty-eight images offer a rich presentation of every day life in parts of Egypt, Ethiopia, Mali, among other locations on the continent. I am particularly impressed with architectural, cultural, and familial images. I believe this body of work covers a fifteen to twenty year period starting in the 1980s.
