Sinopsis: Presenting the work of 30 diverse photographers from throughout Africa since 1940, this is the complete catalogue of an exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Studio portraits of the 1940s by photographers such as the Ivory Coast's Cornelius Yao Azaglo Augustt, Senegal's Salla Casset and Meissa Gay, and Mali's Seydou Keita depict a period of great transformation in Africa. Examples of the 1950s include work by Bob Gasani, Peter Magubane and Lionel Oostendorp for the magazine "Drum", and featured photographers of the 1960s and 1970s include Samuel Fosso (Central African Republic), David Goldblatt (South Africa), Ricardo Rangel (Mozambique) and Malick Sidibe (Mali). These more recent photographs chronicle the development of independent countries and the emergence of Africa as part of the modern world. Contemporary artists in North Africa and Nigeria are represented by work on new themes.
From Library Journal:
This survey of African photographers accompanies an exhibit of the same name at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The production quality is excellent, as is the selection of photographs (from museums, archives, and private collections). Each of 30 African photographers (some of them Afrikaners and other Caucasians) from many religions and nationalities are represented by a small sampling of his of her diverse output, only hinting at the work being done in Africa during the last half of this century. The images date from the struggles for independence to the present postcolonial period. Largely concerned with Western and African perceptions of Africa and the emergence of a modern (and more Westernized) self-image, the footnoted essays do not attempt a full history of African photography but discuss such subjects as photographic ethnography, reality and representation, propaganda and truth, and the effects of technological advances on the creation of visual imagery of a continent. This book will find a warm welcome among interested lay readers and scholars alike. Recommended for photohistory, ethnographic, and African history collections.?Kathleen Collins, New York Transit Museum Archives, Brooklyn
