PUTTING AFRICAN STORIES IN THE FRAME - We Are Africa

PUTTING AFRICAN STORIES IN THE FRAME

2 -min. read

As you’ll all be aware by now, for We Are Africa 2016 we’re focusing on confronting inaccurate, outside narratives of Africa by sharing a very different set of stories: those Made In Africa. And to get our tribe in the Made In Africa mindset, we’ve embarked on an exciting collaboration that literally puts these authentic, handmade and homegrown stories in the frame…

We’ve partnered with magazine African Lens and filmmaker Beverly Joubert to bring you a selection of such stories from a variety of African photographers. Aaron Yeboah Jr, curator and designer for the magazine, explains:

“African Lens serves as an open window into the world of Africans. I wanted to create a platform for African photographers to share their own stories. To show the world the Africa we know, the Africa we see and the Africa of our dreams. African Lens hopes to shine a light on the beauty and rich, diverse culture of Africans, both in the motherland and as migrants in foreign lands.”

Our very own on-site gallery can be found at the show entrance, with each photographer taking you on a journey through how they see Africa – there’s even an opportunity to create your own Made In Africa snap at the end of the exhibition. Below is a preview of some of the images on show – don’t miss it!
