“Truly moving towards decolonisation involves having a clear understanding of who we are as Africans in relation to the rest of the world.
It means knowing and celebrating the strength, resilience and diversity of African people while being aware of the continent’s flaws and working towards fixing them.
Corruption, war and systemic violence against marginalised communities are some of the things that sets many African communities back and prevents them from being the best communities they can be.
It would be hard to believe that photography alone can fix decades of stigma, oppression and violence. What it can do, however, is tell the stories of those who have been forgotten and oppressed for so long.”
