There has been a lot of talk about recent photography from South Africa, for example see this article, or find a very openly dissenting article here. I have been talking about this issue with a couple of close friends, one living in South Africa, one an American photographer who has spent a long time in various parts of Africa, photographing there. I’ve come to the conclusion that instead of debating the recent work I’d rather talk about and/or introduce other African photographers here. So with the help of my two friends - thanks, Tobias and Robert! - there’ll now be a week of photography from Africa on this blog.
