Everyday Africa: 30 Photographers Re-Picturing a Continent

Everyday Africa: 30 Photographers Re-Picturing a Continent


Everyday Africa combats the clichés that depict Africa as a place of only poverty, disease, and war. Featuring the finest images from the acclaimed social media project, the book showcases photos of ordinary life that find beauty in stories rarely seen, shifting perception from the sensationalized extremes to a more textured, familiar reality.

Photographs run alongside sections of Instagram commentary inspired by the images. Shocking, funny, and heartfelt, the comments are lighthearted one moment, caustic the next, speaking volumes about widely held perceptions of Africa while underscoring the continent's increased connectivity in a globalized world.
