Artist: Nella Aguessy aka BIGMOTHA
Description: In a time of sadness, revolt and demand from the Afro community around the world, an initiative was launched in Berlin. The Afro youth speaks with one voice and expresses their feelings of incomprehension. A photo reportage showing their messages.
Bigmotha is my alter ego, a Berlin based self-educated photographer from France. I am that indomitable and creative spirit who traveled throughout Africa, USA, Asia and Europe to meet images that tell their own stories. After a Bachelor of Art in Politic Sciences, I pursued my studies with a Master degree in Management. But that was not enough, I had the strong will to learn the history of Art and became more and more interested in its variety. My appeal for Art led me to diverse artistic projects including the Paris Photo fair trade and a Pop up event at the MoMA in New-York. I am part of a really inspiring artsy family, our art flourish through different kind of mediums; photography is my way of expression.
Curators note: a great self portrait
