African Visions Summary

African Visions: The Diary of an African Photographer by Mirella Ricciardi

A quirky, anecdotal part-diary part-reminiscence album of life in Africa from the 1920s to the present day, seen through the lens of one of the greatest photographers to work on the continent together with fascinating archival material from her extended family. All the great African characters from George Adamson to Peter Beard people the pages as do Hollywood stars, animal trainers, models and fashion photographers. Her greatest love, the tribal warriors and panoramic landscapes of Africa take centre stage. 'Haunting mix of photographs and diary reveals the variety and richness of African life' Colin McDowell - SUNDAY TIMES 'Family snaps, disappearing tribes, white settlers and wildlife are immortalised by the supreme chronicler of Africa' TATTLER 'A gorgeous book of Mirella Ricciardi's richly atmospheric picture tribes people, landscapes and wildlife' WANDERLUST
