  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Lourdes and her child are from southern Angola from a Muahacona community. The portrait captures the intimate relationship of mother and child.

    The hair of Muahacona women is set firm at the fringe with a mixture of animal oil, cow dung and bark and often has an inlay of beads. The black oily paste is also applied throughout the hair braids and on the neck, and surprisingly, is quite fragrant.

    John Kenny’s work is all shot on location in some of the remotest corners of Africa. His images are all taken with natural light and his subjects in their day to day attire.

    C-type photograph with a UV-protective acrylic face mount and metal subframe. The piece is hung from the subframe and sits away from the wall. The standard acrylic has a gloss finish. Other sizes are also available if you would like more information please enquire.

John Kenny

United Kingdom Born in: 1975
John Kenny is a self-taught photographer who fell in love with this art in 2003. John Kenny's stunning portraits from Africa document a series of tribal societies justly proud of their traditions and cultural heritage. As the continent becomes increasingly urbanized and environmental pressures grow on peoples living at the peripheries of the modern world such images have become precious, rare insights.

John Kenny has photographed in regions that stretch from the southern valleys of Ethiopia and harsh desert of northern Kenya, across to the arid hinterlands of West Africa, and beyond to the southern desert regions of Namibia and Angola. Faces emerge from the shadows illuminated by a soft and diffuse natural light.

“Lines that lead to perfection” was auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York in November 2011. A book of his images “Facing Africa / L’Afrique en face” was published in 2013.
