Mirella Ricciardi - Vanishing Africa
Bernheimer Fine Art Photography is proud to announce the exhibition Vanishing Africa.
The Kenya born artist Mirella Ricciardi has travelled for over forty years around Africa to record her home, country and its people. The result of her journey is reflected in the unique photographs which form the basis of the bestselling book Vanishing Africa (1971). Vanishing Africa was the prototype for the so-called 'coffee-table book', which granted a new audience an unprecedented insight into the world of the East African people. It also became a model for Leni Riefenstahl and Peter Beard, the latter has a close friendship with Ricciardi. When Mirella Ricciardi began photography in 1967 she did not have any technical training. She was inspired by the surroundings of Lake Naivasha, where she grew up and a place with a...
A F R I C A - Photographs by NICK BRANDT, IRVING PENN, MIRELLA RICCIARDI, LENI RIEFENSTAHL and GEORGE RODGERAtlas Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of fine and rare photographs by five of the most important photographers to work in the continent over the last fifty years.

Ricciardi’s iconic book ‘Vanishing Africa’, published in 1971, was also of central importance to Brandt’s mission to capture the majesty of Africa’s wild animals, many in the process of near extinction. In the work of all five there is an ur...
Mirella RicciardiForty years ago Mirella Ricciardi travelled through Kenya and Sudan to photograph some of the last unspoilt tribes of Africa. She returned with a unique collection of visceral photographs that formed her seminal book Vanishing Africa (1971), an international bestseller. The Michael Hoppen Gallery are delighted to announce an exhibition of both iconic and previously unseen photographs taken in Africa by Ricciardi - none of which have been exhibited in the United Kingdom for more than 35 years. When Mirella Ricciardi began taking pictures in Kenya in 1967, she was free from the encumbrance of formal photographic training. Her fresh eye, combined with an unconventional childhood - surrounded by an array of animals and tribes people on the shores of Lake Naivasha - imbued Ricciardi with a rare ability to instinctively captur...
