“Africa is poor, but we can try and help its people”. It’s a simple statement, repeated through a thousand images, newspaper stories and charity appeals each year, so that it takes on the weight of truth. When we read it, we reinforce assumptions and stories about Africa that we’ve heard throughout our lives. We reconfirm our image of Africa. Try something different. “Africa is rich but we steal its wealth.”
“Africa” is available as a signed limited edition print, please see the “Racism and Colonialism” series on the limited edition print section of the website..
