July 21/13 — The New African Photography is a documentary series which profiles six African artists determined to take back control of how their continent is portrayed. “Photography Was Used As A Colonial Tool.” Regardless of operating under the guise of “Humanitarian,” “Photojournalism” has not, nor will ever create “Social Change.” The photo exhibitions held by “Photojournalists” in prestigious “Art” galleries around the world has never created change. “Photojournalists” have always maintained the corporate status quo narrative and generated more oppression, more suffering. The people of Africa say, “Please don’t come to us with your “charity” acting as our rescuers and saviours, if you truly want to help us don’t steal from us to begin with.” [2] Barbara Minishi: The Red Dress — Commenting on how Africa has been photographically misrepresented for over a century, Kenyan photographer Barbara Minishi says, “Don’t look at Africa and think one thing. How come this view of Africa is always the soldier or the starving child?” Instead, Minishi’s project focuses upon the Kenyan women. http://aje.me/156KPax http://bit.ly/117TSqN http://bit.ly/1350wf6 Corporate Colonialism Africa’s Biggest Land Grabs: http://bit.ly/16DDhyu  Royal Dutch Shell: http://bit.ly/ZCffzw Royal Dutch Shell: http://royaldutchshellplc.com/ The End of the Maasai: http://bit.ly/14AKPRR The Secret of the Seven Sisters Documentaryhttp://aje.me/10F9i38
