    A Window on Africa – Ethiopian Portraits
    R450.00 inc. VAT

    “My little red window has become almost a mirror image of the startling changes taking place today in Africa, where so many conflicts have arisen from the coming together of different peoples, creating a chaotic jumble of humanity that obliges vastly different cultures and languages to bond together to form some kind of community. My window has captured a moment in time, nothing more, nothing less, and in its endless stream of faces we can see the diversity of humankind, its customs and its religions, in a place that the old world now has to share with the new, with strangers who are here to stay. What is happening to the Suri in Kibish on a small scale is happening all over our planet through globalization: all of us are now confronted with otherness, an inevitable meeting of the known and the unknown.” – Hans Silvester
