Mirella Ricciardi

I was given Mirella Ricciardi's book "African Visions" when I was about 15, and obsessed with everything African..Her photographs carry the warmth and vibrancy of life that I associate with my own experiences on the continent and her life as a woman photographer in the late sixties and early seventies remain a symbol of independence and empowerment to me.
