The Diary of An African PhotographerBook - 2000
"In her diary of her years in Africa, Ricciardi collects memories of places, people, and experiences in words and in pictures exuding joy, beauty, pain, and even horror. This great photographer ("Vanishing Africa; Vanishing Amazon") presents an intimate account of Africa to the reader...with such sincerity that it may be experienced first-hand, unadulterated....Through stories and commentaries as well as pictures, the people emerge full of life and emotions, the landscape flows as the stage for their lives, and the reader gets a subtle lesson in history. Anyone interested in African adventure and travel should at least peruse this work...recommended for both public and academic libraries...."--"Library Journal." "Mirella Ricciardi('s)...visceral approach shows in this collection of photographs that depict a wide range of subjects, including wildlife, people, landscapes and war....chronicles a life spent in Africa from the 1920s to the present."--"Publishers Weekly."
