Thank you to everyone who made to the Opening of 'An African Lens exhibition: Volume 4' that showcased works by African female photographers from across the continent. It was a great turn out of over 400+ people over the weekend. The selected photographers prints showcased such a vibrant and vivacious range of images depicting Imams going to Saras within the Sierra Leonean community visualized in striking monochromatic tones by Adama Jalloh; Danish-born Somali photographer Amaal Said who presents Muslim women against resplendent backgrounds of fuchsia, rich reds and deep purples; Ghanaian-British photographer Heather Agyepong who explores Lady Sarah Forbes Bonetta, a West African adopted goddaughter of Queen Victoria who came to live in England at a young age; Ethiopian self-taught documentary photographer Hilina Abebe as she captures the life of a young woman in who earns a living from shining shoes to take care of her daughter amongst many others. Through an assortment of styles and color palettes, an incredible range of stories and perspectives were wonderfully illustrated in the main gallery space. The exhibition is curated by Bianca A. Manu & continues until 29th April 2018. There's still a chance to see it if you haven't yet. #africanfemalephotographers #photoexhibition #photography #africanlens #Ghana #Africa
