An outstanding show of contemporary African photographs opened on Friday at the Stedelijk Museum - it's a must-see. The picture on the poster is by Nontsikelo 'Lolo' Veleko, from South Africa. My own favorite works were by Hentie van der Merve (South Africa) and Luis Basto (Mozambique).
I haven't returned to Sub-Saharan Africa since I left Kenya, via Zimbabwe and South Africa, at age 5. The show brought me back to a continent whose intense light, raw colors, and sublime nature I miss with all my heart.
