Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou. Untitled (Vodou Series), 2011.
Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou’s photographs of the people of Porto-Novo, Benin (formerly Republic of Dahomey) are drawn from street life, his friends, family and studio customers. Benin is all about colour – Porto Novo is like a visual assault.In Leonce’s impressive portraits, wild combinations of locally designed Dutch imported textiles create extreme gradations between background, foreground, person and clothing. Leonce is part of a generation experiencing rapid change and his photographs capture the energy and unfettered zest for life of a people caught between tradition and progress.
Sukhishvili dancers | Rob Hurson
Dancers from the Sukhishvili Georgian National Ballet company perform Samaia, a traditional Georgian dance rooted in ancient pagan tradition that has come to represent the transformation of King Tamar, the legendary medieval ruler of the Christian) kingdom of Georgia.
King Tamar, the first woman to rule that nation in her own right, is its most revered historical figure. She established a pan-Caucasian empire that stretched “from the Sea of Pantus to the Sea of Gurgan, from Speri to Derbend, and all the Hither and Thither Caucasus up to Khazaria and Scythia”—under her command, Georgia became a regional power capable of massive military movement.
But Samaia is a delicate dance. Three women, clad in traditional medieval Georgian costumes, symbolize Tamar’s evolution: from innocent maiden to wise mother to powerful king.
