black my story: metaphorical trash


samson007_big.jpg  “Black My Story” is a series of photographs taken by Malawian artist Samson Kambalu when he first moved to Amsterdam and found inspiration amid the trash heaps of his new home.  His and many other artists’ stories can be found online at the Dutch website the Virtual Museum of Contemporary African Art; including this short essay on sea containers loaded with used materials from Holland that end up in Ghana and the art they inspire along the way.
