Everyday Africa

There are no postcards here - no elephants or pink flamingos or dramatic lion kills, no close-ups of Maasai warriors, no zebra/wildebeest migrations or even spectacular scenery. Nor are there images of starving children or the victims of disease or people damaged by internal wars: like the stereotyped romantic images, the horrors also do not speak for the everyday reality of African lives. ..
