Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography

‘Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography’ features approximately 250 works by 30 artists from across the African continent.

The book presents a range of highly individual artistic responses to the unprecedented changes now taking place in the economic, social, and cultural spheres of African nations, and provides new insight into the increasing role of the visual arts within the global cultural community. In addition to introducing audiences to the multiple imaginations and voices that constitute today’s African artists, the book explores the way that this body of photo-based art arises from the dialectic of traditional African aesthetic values and Western influences.
