Invitation: African Photojournalism Database at Photoville in New York


OPC members are invited to join the African Photojournalism Database at Photoville in New York City, from Sept. 13 to 23, for the exhibition ‘Foreseen: New Narratives from the African Photojournalism Database.’

A joint project of the World Press Photo Foundation and Everyday Africa, the APJD is a directory of over 350 emerging and professional visual storytellers from over 35 different countries across the continent.

Offering re-imagined visual narratives from across the African continent, ‘Foreseen’ explores themes such as tradition, religion, identity, history, memory and daily life. This collection of work celebrates a new generation of photographers who are redefining what should be seen, and how, through the stories that matter to them. Find out more about the exhibition here.

PHOTOVILLE is a pop up photography village in Brooklyn Bridge Park with over 85 exhibitions, talks, workshops, and night-time screenings. It’s free for everyone to attend and enjoy! Find out more about the program here.

Three of the exhibited photographers, Fethi Sahraoui (Algeria), Ngadi Smart (Sierra Leone), and Gulshan Khan (South Africa), will be present at Photoville. Join the public ‘meet and greet’ sessions at the exhibition to hear more about the photographers and their stories.
