In his latest Nairobi-based body of work, Jerry Riley, a Canadian photographer, explores the art of the Khanga and the Khanga as art. Here, khanga-based visual meditations evoke nurture as well as sexuality and food as well as fashion in a series of reflections on the African woman’s work ethic, imagination and sensuality.
These photographs, which are profound in their simplicity and complex in their meaning and yonic gestures, are also richly humorous, vibrantly colorful and forthrightly evocative of happiness and abundance.
