This web dossier showcases the library’s rich collection of photobooks, and literature on photography. It also highlights the ASCL photo collection on Wikimedia Commons, and other web resources.

The web dossier focuses on photography by photographers from Africa, and its diaspora. Some general titles on the history of photography in Africa are also included. The web dossier starts with an introduction by Andrea Stultiens, visual artist and artistic researcher, affiliated with the Royal Academy of Art and Minerva Art Academy.

Introduction

In this introduction to the ‘African Photography’ web dossier, I invite you to dive into what Nigerian-American artist and scholar Olu Oguibe calls ‘the substance of the image’.[1] Should you accept this invitation, it may be useful to know that I write this as an artistic researcher who studies the use of photographs in Uganda in particular and photographic imaginations of ‘Africa’ in general.[2]

The Merriam-Webster dictionary provides an ambivalent list of what the word ‘substance’ signifies, ranging from “essence” to “physical material” and “something deemed harmful and usually subject to legal restriction”.  All these potential significations of the word substance are relevant in relation to ‘African Photography’, which is both a wonderfully inclusive notion and a highly problematic generalisation that extends from the word ‘African’ to the word ‘photography’.

When is photography ‘African’? Does such ‘photography’ have to be produced on the continent to qualify?[3] Should it be produced by Africans who might have a better understanding of what they capture than momentary visitors? Should such ‘photography’ be kept on the continent, or at least be available to Africans so that it can be used to inform African pasts and present?

In the rich list of resources below, ‘African Photography’ includes publications presenting and discussing photographs produced on the African continent by both Africans and non-Africans. When photographs were produced by non-Africans this frequently took place in problematic conditions with cultural violence and abuse of power at play.[4] It also includes works on photographs made outside of Africa by makers in the diaspora or of African heritage. While this makes the spectrum as wide as possible, it also risks  adding insult to the injuries of imperial ambitions resulting in coloniality and its neocolonial echoes.[5]

Olu Oguibe starts to discursively make room for ‘African Photography’ by linking it to a particular date in terms of “its arrival” on 16 November 1839. The event he refers to took place in the entourage of the Mehmet, Khedive and vice regent of Egypt, and the authorship of the pictures produced is made ambivalent by the same gesture.[6] This is an on-point example of the way in which photography is positioned as an event, and the photograph as an encounter that is the (potential) outcome of this event.[7] Often, the word ‘photography’ refers to pictures made on a light-sensitive surface with the use of a camera, rather than the act of making photographs as well as “the means of production, reproduction and distribution” resulting from that act.[8] I would argue that in all those cases Photography should be replaced by Photographs, because the implication of particular pictures resulting from particular encounters also speaks to the lived conditions in which the pictures were produced. This positioning of photography and photograph is important to keep in mind whenever ‘photography’ is mentioned in general, and particularly urgent in the contested colonial and postcolonial conditions of ‘Africa’.

Lantern slide of the Hofstra photograph.

An earlier version of Oguibe’s essay was published in the 1996 catalogue accompanying a group exhibition in the Guggenheim Museum of photographs by African makers.[9] Uganda – one of 54 African countries – is mentioned only in relation to Zarina Bhimji, who is one of the 30 photographers included in the show. While it would have been difficult to effect an equal distribution of these 30 photographers over the continent, any possibility of such seems to have been actively negated by the very title of the show, “In/sight: African Photographers, 1940 to present”, making a claim to the continent as a whole. Okwui Enwezor and Octavia Zaya do acknowledge the challenges of ‘African Photography’ in their essay titled “Colonial Imaginary, Tropes of Disruption, Culture, and Representation of African Photographers”. For example, they explicitly ask where Bhimji, “a Ugandan artist of Asian origin who lives in London” should be located on the map.[10]

The catalogue features one of the beautiful portraits made by Seydou Keita (1921-2001), who operated a photo studio in Bamako between 1948 and 1963. His studio portraits and the photographs produced by fellow Malian photographer Malick Sidibé (1936-2016) formed the dominant visualisation of modern ‘African Photography’ during the 1990s bleeding into the 21st century.[11] The emergence of digital photography and the options this generated for the reproduction and distribution of photographs in Africa has led to a more varied and constantly expanding visual library in terms of past and present-day ‘African Photography’.

Print of the Hofstra photograph, mounted on cardboard

It can be argued, however, that the more or less democratic distribution of ‘African Photography’ afforded by digital imaging technologies, including phone cameras, also leads to a loss of substance. ‘Substance’ is used here in terms of the photograph as an object that carries its own social, cultural, and environmental biography in its materiality. Publications on ‘African Photography’ in academic contexts often ignore this aspect of the material studied. Reproductions are often made at an angle, possibly in an attempt to avoid the reflection of the surface of a print obscuring the picture. Edges of prints or negatives are often cropped, emphasising the photograph’s function as a window into the world and obscuring its material existence.[12]

The collection of the African Studies Centre does not only offer literature to study ‘African Photography’. It also includes, for instance, prints and negatives of photographs that were produced by anthropologist Sjoerd Hofstra while on fieldwork in Sierra Leone during the 1930s. The individual images and the ‘Breathing Photograph’ animation with this introduction are (based on) four different versions of a picture resulting from an encounter Hofstra had in Panguma. The photograph of one of two available 9x12 negatives allows us to get as close as possible to the event, in which a group of Poro initiates have come to the guest house where Hofstra resided while in Panguma. Those who clicked the Poro link may have seen that this image is not only highly unusual, in terms of photographic evidence of the widely described and discussed Poro Society, but it also illustrates the text.[13] I know, from engaging with the collection at large, that Hofstra produced the negative standing on the stairs leading to the entrance of the guest house.

The other three pictures derive from this better-exposed version of these two negatives. The first is a lantern slide that crops the negative to a square to make optimal use of the surface of the slide. The second is a print mounted on cardboard and features a caption that generates confusion as to the gender of the children in the photograph. The print used to be part of the collection of the Ethnographic Museum in Rotterdam, where Hofstra was director from 1937 and 1949. Currently, the print is in the care of the Nederlands Fotomuseum, also in Rotterdam, where I encountered it first in the museum’s online database and subsequently gained access to the actual print and three other images produced by Hofstra. The third picture is a screenshot taken from the PDF of a 2014 book that publishes the letters that Hofstra wrote to his adoptive mother in the Netherlands while in Sierra Leone.[14] The animation is what I call a breathing photograph, a simple animation, containing both negatives, plus the other three iterations of one of them, in which photographs ‘breath’ into one another at the speed of the breathing of a human body at ease. I use this mediation as a research method for photographs that I consider to be heritage that should be questioned without obscuring or negating it. The animation, the Breathing Photograph, is an attempt to do this in one go.[15]

 

I hope that the addition of these pictures to the words demonstrate the relevance of the agency of photographs that the notion of photography may just obscure.

The Hofstra photographs (Sierra Leone, 1934-1936) are without a doubt one of the most interesting collections. The photographs by Hofstra are currently in use in 52 articles in Wikipedia, and this specific photograph of a Poro initiation rite is used 10 times, in several language versions of Wikipedia.
