“Tamagni’s work is fabulous and whilst he doesn’t only work in Africa he is one of the few European artists who can be considered to be significant in the African contemporary scene in that his work is so respectful of its subjects and so cutting edge in its content. “

“This smart combination of Italian photojournalist Daniele Tamagni’s images of dapper Congolese men and a supporting exhibit of color-driven African photography (loosely defined) gets my vote for the best summer group show of photography in New York this year. In contrast to the mind numbing boredom of the typical gathering of the gallery stable, this show introduces a memorable body of work and surrounds it with a relevant sampler of related pictures. It’s fresh, brash, and lively, with a snappy sense of style”
