RAMILY ILAY NANAO NY MARAINA: Father of Black and White photography
28 April – 30 July 2022

“Marking the first retrospective of the photographer’s work, the exhibition overviews his authority as a professor, photographer, traveler, and social commentator. Born in Antananarivo in 1939, Ramily – also affectionately known as ‘Dadamily’ – was a catalyst for cultural expression during the first decades of Malagasy independence. Across famous faces, bustling crowds, and silent rural landscapes, Ramily’s extensive collection of historical black and white photos made him a national icon, with his profile peaking from the 1970s until the 1990s. Bringing the works to life, each photograph at HAKANTO is presented in conversation with newly commissioned explanatory texts from Malagasy artist and sociologist Ludonie Velontrasina (b.1985).”
