Global STYLE Battles

A retrospective of works exploring music and fashion in Africa and Cuba by Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni

24 May 2013 | Visit website

This summer, ArtEco Gallery are delving into the vibrant world of African and Cuban fashion and music. Global STYLE Battles, a retrospective of photographs by Italian photographer Daniele Tamagni, uncover a fascinating world of ‘Flying Cholitas’, ‘Playboys of Bacongo’, ‘Havana Glam’, ‘Afrometal’ and the original Django, spanning African hell riders and duelling Bolivian women.

Inspired by master photographer, Henri Cartier Bresson, Tamagni’s iconic photographs are a mixture of the staged and the candid, all depending on what occurs within a specific moment. Tamagni reveals “if they appear to be constructed, then that is good, for I want to leave the viewer questioning what they see.”

The exhibition presents pioneers of the African avant-garde in new and arresting contexts, not to be missed!
