From photographys introduction to Africa by European countries that needed to keep an eye on their colonies, to its recent use as a documentary tool against apartheid and for independence, its history encompasses, like the continent itself, a colorful and multi-faceted narrative of oppression and struggle, liberation and birth. Art historians, university professors, and local journalists from all over the world as well as writers from Revue Noire magazine provide incisive essays that document the pioneering and original work of African photographers, such as Seydou Keita, Meissa Gaye, Mama Casset, Felix Diallo, Malick Sidibe, Cornelius August, Billy Monk, Santu Mofokeng, Pierrot Men, Catheryn Pinnock, Bob Gosani, and many others. This 1998 Nadar Prize-winning book is now offered in an English edition and accompanies a traveling exhibition. This is an exhaustive reference that will appeal to photo-historians and cultural scientists, as well as those with a desire to see Africa through the eyes of Africans.
