Images of the West
Two organisations have collaborated in this beautifully produced book: Images of Africa in Denmark and Baobab Books in Zimbabwe. Images of Africa is one of the world's largest festivals of African art and culture, and this book is published in conjunction with the third festival in 1996. It brings together a range of perceptions of the West from writers throughout the African continent. Personal or political, intimate or rhetorical, abrasive or tender, they arise from deeply held convictions and experience. A recognition of the ambivalence of the relationship between the West and Africa is apparent in both the text and the photographs; but the book suggests that there is room for dialogue, honesty, and greater understanding.
