AGNONA



Agnona, established in 1953 by Francesco Ilorini Mo in Borgosesia, Italy, began as a fine wool textile manufacturer and became the leading supplier of fabrics for prestigious fashion maisons such as Chanel, Dior and Balenciago. Ermenegildo Zegna, which was also among its clients, decided to buy the company in 1999 to guide it on the path of success and international fame. Much progress has been made since 1999, thanks to the opening of several directly-owned boutiques and the brand's consolidated presence in the most exclusive department stores around the globe.

AFRICAN CANVAS

 

AFRICAN CANVAS

The Art of Africa is a casualty

of colonial exploitation, surviving
principally in the museums of
other countries.
Nadine Gordimer


My objective in this work is to document an extraordinary art form - vernacular art and architecture in West Africa - that is not transportable and therefore not seen in museums around the world.


 It is an attempt to capture the unseen Africa, a glimpse into the homes and into the spirit of very proud and dignified peoples.


In much the same way as I photographed the art of Ndebele women, I have drawn on my personal affinity for the art itself, for methods, design and form, rather than the socio-anthropological or political realities of a people or continent in dilemma.



 These images portray a unique tradition of Africa, a celebration of an indigenous rural culture in which the women are the artists and the home her canvasMargaret Courtney-Clarke




Margaret Courtney-Clarke is one of those rare individuals who not only thinks about life, what it means and what treasures it holds in store, but deservedly stands in that edifying tradition of photo-journalism that illuminates the human spirit. Her photography and her acclaimed books, notably her trilogy NdebeleAfrican Canvas & Imazighen, as well as her contributions to numerous other publications are deeply human and nuanced in their thought as well as being imbued with a rare spirit of dignity and love.by Prof. Andre' du Pisani
