The exhibition "Nairobi, the visible city" by photographer Leni Frau, stage name of Maddalena Stefanelli, soul of the portal of Italians in Kenya and for more than ten years narrator of this country through her shots, was inaugurated yesterday at the Bar Bar in Malindi, during the presentation of Freddie del Curatolo's book that reports some of its images.
During the vernissage, an invitation-only event organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in Nairobi, journalist Bruno Angelico introduced the publication, which had been presented last April 9 in the capital and will be replicated next January 17 at The Sands at Nomad in Diani, as a harmonious blend of storytelling, journalistic reportage, travel guide and novel. "All packaged as a declaration of love."
Leni's black-and-white shots, which will be on public view for a few days, highlight more of the contrasts of the Kenyan metropolis, as the presentation states.
"Images that only minimally describe the huge, disorienting, pan-African, not totally nor deliberately decolonized set of microcosms that seemingly erase all commonplaces, but in fact sketch a larger and more emblematic one...."
The exhibition will also be freely viewable in the coming days in the Bar Bar lounge space. For information about the images and to get a book, call 0717067198.
