    Ennie MadameX tz1 Globu Kunta Kinte kijembeee & etc - naona Mbuzi Mzee kaingia mitini na hajatoa jibu wakati watu wanataka kufahamu nini hasa kinaendelea katika hii picha.

    Hiyo picha nilishawahi kuiona wakati fulani ... infact zipo na nyingine kadhaa .... Hii inaitwa Princess Adaobi. Enugu, Nigeria, 2008 & its just a work of art!.

    There's this South African photographer Pieter Hugo who asked a team of actors and assistants to recreate Nollywood myths and symbols as if they were on movie sets, Hugo initiated the creation of a verisimilar reality.


    His vision of the film industry’s interpretation of the world results in a gallery of hallucinatory and unsettling images.


    The tableaux of the series depict situations clearly surreal but that could be real on a set; furthermore, they are rooted in the local symbolic imaginary. The boundaries between documentary and fiction become very fluid, and we are left wondering whether our perceptions of the real world are indeed real.

    Because seeing his work on my computer screen is not good enough i decided to take advantage of Trenitalia's new 'super fast' trains and booked a little trip to sunny and warmish Rome. Bad idea! The terms "super fast trains" have to be taken with a pinch of salt, 70% of them reach their destination with delay, sometimes with very cruel delays as i had the pleasure to experience. I arrived in town on the 6th but everything was closed because of some Catholic feast. Everything but the shops that is. Even the Pope is powerless in front of consumerism. On the 7th the gallery opened at 3.30 pm but i was already on my way to see another exhibition in Florence. ¬°Ay que dolor!

    So here's what i missed in Rome: Hugo's series dedicated to the Nigerian film industry. Nollywood is one of the largest film industries in the world, releasing onto the home video market approximately 1000 movies each year. Directors need only one week and up to 20,000 euros to pack a movie shock full of romance, comedy, voodoo curses, bribery, prostitution, and sometimes all of that together. The scripts are basic, the actors cast the day of the shooting, the sets are always on location and often improvised.
