Africa is all about layers and light. The layers come from the incredible diversity of landscapes, cultures, characters and ways of life. The light is also offered up in so many ways – golden sunsets over the Sahara, the multiple blues of the oceans, the colourful colours of a bustling marketplace, the soft cool greens of a forest in Gabon, the inkiness of Africa’s spectacular night skies.
In Africa, nothing is predictable, everything is changing and for photographers, it is a magical space to tell stories through pictures and places…
