Gary Metz lecture | Emmanuelle Andrianjafy
RISD's Photography department welcomes Gary Metz lecturer Emmanuelle Andrianjafy, a Malagasy photographer who arrived in the port city of Dakar, situated on the westernmost African coast, in 2011. Nothing’s in Vain is Adrianjafy’s response to the experience of uprooting to the Senegalese capital, a city as vibrant as it is disorientating. Embracing the chaos of an unfamiliar world, she takes us on an exploratory journey through a metropolis in constant flux between construction and deconstruction. The sequence of images careens between street scenes, portraits, landscapes and close-up details, recreating her fluctuating experience of the multiple faces of the city.
Winner of the MACK First Book Award (2017), Andrianjafy’s work has been exhibited at Photo London, Image Afrique Fesival (Basel) and Festival Voies Off (Arles) at the Athens Photo Festival, and she won the CAP Prize in 2017.
