Launch of The Journey

A photo book showcasing the work of 17 young photographers from across Africa

About this experience

Join Bridge Books and Goethe Institut for the launch of a new photography book, with some of the artists who created it.

The Journey profiles 17 emerging positions in contemporary African photography. The versatile practices of these young photographers from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, and Sudan encapsulates some of the ambitions, enthusiasms, and possibilities of African photography today. All of them are alumni of the “Photographers’ Masterclass”, a decade-long mentorship-program (2008–2018) by curator Simon Njami and the Goethe-Institut. 13 essays, considering African photography in this particular historical moment, complement the book.
