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.

As Ishiuchi writes: “From the 19,000 items made available to me [at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum], I chose things that at one time had touched skin and bodies, and photographed them…. A flower-patterned dress colourfully dyed. A puff of gathered, shiny skirt woven of silk thread. Cool-looking, thin, georgette materials that once shed the summer heat. Used kimonos transformed into blouses and cut to make air-raid hoods…. These objects, exposed to the heat and radioactive rays of a fire ball that suddenly appeared one summer morning, and relinquished by the victims of the atomic bombing, have been on earth as long as I have. When I came to realize the coincidence, I caught my breath at their vivid hues and distinct textures, their flaws and complicated detail. These are too deeply linked to daily lives to regard as ‘historical materials.’”
