Diaspora - Penda

Diaspora - Penda
by Dagmar Van Weeghel


Portrait of Penda. This portrait series of immigrants (non models) restages and signifies the importance of African settlers in Europe throughout history and present day. These portraits are an homage to their collective experience - a tribute to their strength, resilience, and perseverance. The portraits harken back to the Orientalist paintings of Josep Tapiró Baró in Tangier, Morocco.
