Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography Sale

By Okwui Enwezor (Editor)

Featuring over 280 works by forty artists from across the African continent Snap Judgments presents a range of highly individual artistic responses to the unprecedented changes now taking place in the economic, social, and cultural spheres of African nations 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 the way that this body of photo-based art arises from the dialectic of African aesthetic values and Western influences.  

Includes a major essay by ICP Adjunct Curator Okwui Enwezor; an appendix on recent exhibitions of African photography; artist biographies; a checklist of the exhibition; a bibliography.
