Photo Imagery: The Progression of Traditional African Story Telling

A continent that has been the target of oppression is choosing to motivate. Through the imagery photography, artist are showing the world the culture and traditions that serve as a source of strength and at times as a tool of deferment.

Through photography the struggles and celebrations of life in Africa are seen by the world in a new light. Sometimes dark, sometimes colorful, Africa emerges from the affects of hundreds of years of victimization.

Oral story telling has progressed into visual story telling. The African story is now told through photo imagery of men and women, soldiers and children, politicians and religious figures.
