One of the cornerstones of the National Museum of African Art is the bequest of Eliot Elisofon (1911--1973), a Life magazine photographer whose collection of African art and whose archives of African photographs ---- accumulated over nine expeditions to the continent ---- were donated to the Smithsonian at the end of his life. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of that gift, the museum has organized “Africa Re--Viewed: The Photographic Legacy of Eliot Elisofon.”
In addition to showcasing Elisofon’s images celebrating Africa’s people, art, culture and landscape, the exhibition is the first to pair the photographer’s pictures with some of the objects he collected, as well as his films, books and journals.
