The Owsley Moment

Vivid descriptions of art on display in our part of the state

Listen

We know this photograph was taken in 1960, but the photographer did not record the woman’s name, the location of the image, or the name of the African culture he encountered. Without such information, this photograph operates as a generalization about life in Sub-Saharan Africa.
