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.

If you get a chance go to the Yossi Milo Gallery and see this show.

Water Buffalo: "Love, could you walk on my back; it's so stiff?"
Human: "Love, now that you really ARE a stiff there can be no more pain in your back!"

Or is this just a Nigerian Captain Morgan ad?

I would be okay with this shot if it weren't for the giant red skinned turkey thing the guy is holding. I feel better if I just look at the lovely tree to the left.
