Long overdue, a shot of my Bruce Onobrakpeya: Emete Igboro, the first of a series of 30 plastographs, and
well-documented. It was a very kind gift from friends as I reached the half-century mark! My friend and her family lived in Nigeria in the late 50s through the early 70s (she was born there) and her mum has told me a wonderful story of being 20 years old and pregnant with her second child with the first on her hip, when she bought one of Bruce's pictures at a small show. A few days later he showed up at her door to thank her for her patronage and thus began a professional relationship of many years. When the family left Nigeria, they brought a sizable collection (mostly Onobrakpeya and Twins Seven-Seven, as well as Abuja pottery), of contemporary and traditional art which is now dispersed between Europe and Canada.
