Viviane Sassen’s childhood memories rise to the surface of her highly symbolic photographs of South Africa, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Her frequent exploratory journeys produce portraits with a striking use of pure colours and a subtle play of light and shadow. Take, for example, this Elvis with a red flower who seems to be getting ready for a ritual ceremony behind a mysterious white smoke screen.
