Africa Day

Since the beginning of time, the amazing continent of Africa has been a continent of fire and ice, love and hatred, right or wrong… a fight for survival.

It is a continent of passion.

Of eruptions.

Of war.

But also one of hope. Of rain. Of peace. And of growth.

Africa, in all its diversity, to me, remains a continent of black or white. There is little yin yang here – you are either on the one side or the other. I have always preferred to showcase Africa in colour, but the older (wiser?) I get, the more and more I prefer black and white for my images too. Take away all the colour and you see the real side. The honest side. The hidden side.

Below a few images from a recent Kaokoland trip, to celebrate the continent of my birth, the country of my heart, Namibia.

Happy Africa Day!
