Exhibition Opening “Foreseen: New Narratives from the African Photojournalism Database”

The exhibition “Foreseen” showcases the work of 13 young and emerging African visual storytellers, selected from the African Photojournalism Database (APJD). At the core of the APJD is the mission to celebrate refreshing and diverse stories told by photographers often overlooked by the global media industry - stories that are not widely seen in the current, exclusive media landscape. Offering reimagined visual narratives from across the African continent, ‘Foreseen’ explores themes such as tradition, religion, identity, history, memory and daily life. This collection of work celebrates a new generation of photographers who are redefining what should be seen, and how, through the stories that matter to them.

Exhibition Opening: "Madrinhas de Guerra"

Thanks to the eyes of the photographer Amilton Neves, we are guided  into a very personal journey. Facing some outside metal or wooden painted walls, passing through some small main doors, we are going into the houses of several old Mozambican women, in order to meet them, to enter into their life, into their private space, to see how they live, to acknowledge their past, to listen to their history, to the history of Mozambique.

Exhibition opening and book launch: Northern Ghana Life

  • Learning Centre for Photography and Research, Tamale (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

For three years, 11 Ghanaian and international photographers have made a visual documentation of the society and landscape of Northern Ghana. Their various perspectives allow a nuanced and visually dynamic photographic insight into the richness, beauty, and uniqueness of the region. Northern Ghana has rarely been the subject of collaborative photographic research, and in a historical and a photographic sense we may even go as far as to call it a terra incognita. The stories by the photographers invite us to explore the diverse and dynamic region that is Northern Ghana. They provide a visual interpretation of a largely undocumented landscape, and document its current state-of-affairs for future generations.
