African Visions: The Diary of an African Photographer

Front Cover
Cassell P L C, Aug 8, 2002 - Photography - 288 pages
Mirella Ricciardi is one of the greatest photographers of the African continent; she is also best known for the classic book Vanishing Africa. This highly personal account of her life in Africa from the1920s to the present day is part diary, part reminiscence, and part photographic album. She shows you the great African characters from George Adamson to Peter Beard, plus Hollywood stars, animal trainers, models and fashion photographers. However it's her greatest love--the tribal warriors and the panoramic landscapes of Africa--that take center stage here.
