Item description for Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography by Okwui Enwezor...

Featuring approximately 250 works by over thirty artists from across the African continent, Snap Judgements presents a range of highly individual artistic responses to the unprecedented changes now taking place in Africa 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 ways that this body of photo-based art arises from the dialectic of African aesthetic values and Western influences.

Reviews - What do customers think about Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography?

Debunking the Myth  Mar 22, 2007
This is a top rate book. Enwezor acts as the voice for this movment in photography. It really debunks the myth of the typical (afro-pessimistic) photos of Africa. It shows you all walks of life, from the people who live there. It's straight photography, fine art photography, fashion photography, documentary, and any other type you can think of.

If you are into photography, art, or even just shedding the sterotypes of ignorance, this is the book.
