The Met has just opened up its new exhibit In and Out of the Studio Photographic Portraits from West Africa. It embodies two of my favorite things, old school Africa and old school African photographers. I am big pressed to go see it, thank God it runs all the way up until January 2016.
The exhibit highlights that you can see on the website reminded me that I have a damn museum in my house too! All the old school photos of my parents in colonial and post-colonial Abidjan:
Go best fran that's my best fran!
That's Daddy on the left, so handsome [heart emoji].
Anyone interested in adding my parents photos to their exhibit one day can contact me directly, I'm they manager, in other words "for bookings hit me up on whats app."
