AfroShoot presents: “Photographic Dialogues of the African Diaspora Seminar Series” with Alun Be (Senegal) chaired by Alinta Sara
Photographic Dialogues of the African Diaspora Seminar Series will aim at discussing the different paths and visions the African Diaspora encounters in their works across the globe in the field of photography.
Even though focusing on the global term of “African Photography” this seminar series will also highlight the plurality of individual stories of photographers from the African Diaspora. It is about narrating the experiences and understanding the uniqueness of each perspective in order to discuss the idea of “African Photography”.
Photography as a visual weapon is subjective in its objectivity and thus presents a huge variety of positions.
Through this seminar series, AfroShoot wishes to explore this multitude of stories shaping the term of “African Photography” across the individual paths, visions and identities of each photographer from Africa or its Diaspora.
For the first encounter of this seminar series, AfroShoot has the pleasure to introduce Alun Be, Senegalese photographer who was part of the exhibition “Bridged Narratives” curated by AfroShoot at 50 Golborne Gallery, London.
