Africa Through the Lens book.

Reuters' chief photographer for north-west Africa, Zohra Bensemra . Instead, it is the young girl "walking to school, holding her books, walking like star". South African photographer John Wessels travelled to the Kasai region in the Democratic Republic of Congo in August with Oxfam.

Reuters' chief photographer for north-west Africa, Zohra Bensemra, travelled to a temporary shelter camp in Dallow, Somalia, where she met Zeinab. Like millions of teenagers around the world, Zeinab does her make-up carefully before she goes to school each morning. Unlike millions of teens though, the 14-year-old has already been married - forced into it by her family. She had nothing but she still wanted to study - I am happy I met he. Fresh wound.

Through their lenses, we have seen the continent's beauty and its rawness, the savannahs and the cities-but rarely have we seen this through the eyes of those who actually call Africa home. African photographers have been showcasing their work within the continent for years. Since the majority of archived images of Africa were taken by non-African whites, many of the continent's surviving historical documents show not the experience of Africans but the experience of colonizers and the native Africans they often subjugated. People fill vessels with fuel from an overturned tanker.

Africa, through my lens, Johannesburg. Some of the photography is just outstanding. and not confined in a zoo. Take a look people and enjoy, before they all disappear for ever.

Through the African Ameri. has been added to your Cart. This is a beautiful book with fantastic photography from a bygone era. Everyone grabs it from my coffee table and thoroughly enjoys leafing through the fabulous photos. Beautiful and poingant photographs by African American and other photographers (selected from the large and growing photography collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture), accompanied by three short, insightful essays, reveal the rich and significant contributions African Americans have made to to our great American heritage.

Africa has long been irresistible to art photographers. The diversity of its 54 nations, its natural phenomena-even, say some photographers, the difference in light compared with Europe and the . have spawned vast bodies of work and helped inform the way many in the international community regard the continent. The problem is that these photographs have, until recently, been taken by non-African photographers

It is African-American history seen through the African-American lens, and that is so varied. It is also broad in terms of the quality of the photograph. Some would be gallery worthy and then some are gallery worthy for your family reunion

It is African-American history seen through the African-American lens, and that is so varied. Some would be gallery worthy and then some are gallery worthy for your family reunion. I think it’s really about creating this wonderful array of images that reflect the idiosyncratic nature of human beings. We really are trying to flatten the understanding of what is valuable enough to be kept in perpetuity. And for that reason, it has these iconic moments that people can immediately connect with.
