About Joana Choumali
Featured on LensCulture
- Ivorian artist Joana Choumali instinctively responded to a national tragedy four years ago by embroidering on a series of photographs she had made with her iPhone — the results are images of hope and healing.
- Being naked, this is nothing to hide. Words are not even needed Because the body speaks for itself. Beautiful black and white nude portraits.
- Hââbré is one word for scarification, the age-old practice of performing a superficial incision in a person’s skin. These portraits capture a fast disappearing tradition and thus bear witness to a rapidly, radically changing way of life.
