Artist Bakary Diallo curated by influential New York-based arts innovator Nathalie Anglès

Nathalie angles portrait
Bakary was an exceptional filmmaker whom I had the privilege to meet when his film Tomo was presented in Brazil. He had tremendous talent and a luminous personality. His images on the violence in Mali are symbolic and hopeful, like a phoenix rising through the fire.”
