An African Thunderstorm 2011 [photographs / stamps]

Series of collected archival photographs, hand-stamped on the back with stamps commissioned by local artisans in Kenya. Stamps have been created as a transformation of a well-known piece of poetry by David Rubadiri - An African Thunderstorm.

* Rubadiri's poetry is characterized by innovative images of the changing African continent, and often portrays the self-mocking angst of the African who emerged out of the fusion of African and European cultures.
