    Photography from/about Africa

    Hey All,

    I'm looking for examples of photographic work from (or about) Africa as background to an essay I am writing. I am not really after the photo-journalistic style photography covering war, famine, conflict (e.g. Natchwey, Salgado and many others) nor landscape/nature photography (e.g. Nick Brandt). I am also aware of the commercial portrait style photography of Seydou Keita (?) and one or two others

    What I am really interested in is work which falls outside the (very broad) categories I have mentioned above. In particular, photographers working in an urban context. I know about Guy Tillim and David Goldblatt. I would be very grateful if anyone could point me in the direction of other notable photographers I don't know about - I'm sure there are many .

    Thanking you all in advance ....
    I have a photo blog ... and a Flickr ...

    You might take a look at Gloria Baker Feinstein's work.

    If you know a bit of French, this might be of help:

    The stedelijk museum had an exhibition on this subject. This might bring you more information. See e.g. http://www.absolutearts.com/artsnews.../30/35083.html
