The stunning archival pigment print, Animus #3, Omo Valley, Ethiopia, 2011, by Elizabeth Sunday, sold for $ 390 at the online auction benefiting the George Eastman House.
The benefit auction, both its live and online event, took place from the end of September until Monday, October 10th. 204 photographs from vintage photography to contemporary works were available for sale by famous and emerging photographers from across the globe.
Sunday’s signed print was valued at $ 3,000 and is #7 in an edition of 7.
I was pleased to find a collection called African Mosaics Iposted 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.
