The photographic exhibition is by courtesy of Picha Stock in collaboration with BLQ, USL Express Print and Copy, Furnart and Signature Lifestyle.
This exhibition aims to provide African photographers with a platform to show off their creative abilities and prove that they are more than capable of producing work worthy of global attention. All works will be for sale.
The event will feature interpretations of the “Afrofuturism” concept by photographers from across the continent. The final selection of images has been curated by Daron Bandeira, Ghana-based art director and founder of the contemporary creative platform, Afrobougee.
Guests will be able to enjoy a panel discussion with prominent local creatives covering Afrofuturism and the African visual creative sphere as a whole.
Identical exhibitions will launch in Cape Town, South Africa and Nairobi, Kenya in partnership with Fujifilm SA, Cameraland Cape Town, Ground Art Caffe, sofacompany.com and Quality Frames Africa.
According to Business Development Manager for Picha, Henry Derben, Picha provides image buyers with access to royalty-free stock photography from Africa and custom content creation services that help them tell authentic visual stories and connect with their audiences.
“We work closely with local photographers to empower creatives across our continent by showing them how they can earn a living from their art.
"The brand is driven by visual content that showcases a contemporary side of Africa and people of the African diaspora,” he said.
