Flamboya
by Viviane Sassen and Edo Dijksterhuis and Moses Isegawa




Overview -

Flamboya includes over fifty recent photographs taken across Africa--from Cape Town to Kenya to Zambia--that disregard traditional boundaries of genres and tackle the problematic bond between photography, imperialism, and the colonial imagination. Viviane Sassen's aesthetic vocabulary suggestively recalls documentary as much as staged photography and relies on a visual economy that invites the formulation of multiple interpretations. Seen through Sassen's lens, the ethnic Other interrogates the traditional nexus laid between vision, knowledge, and power, which lies at the heart of the history and ideology of photography.
