Yossi Milo Gallery Chelsea
Jerry and I met for lunch at Lincoln Center and then walked down the river walk to Chelsea to see the Pieter Hugo show at the Yossi Milo Gallery. Jerry had volunteered last year in Africa and saw this guy's work.
It seems after Hollywood and Bollywood, the Nigerian film business is the third largest and called Nollywood. They shoot lots of zombie films, etc. This show is with actors from this world. The photos seem to be grostesques, but are quite beautiful even if the splash of red is blood coming from a water buffalo's throat.
