The World Press Photo Foundation will be at Nuku Photo Festival Ghana to showcase work by members of the African Photojournalism Database (APJD).

A joint project of the World Press Photo Foundation and Everyday Africa, the APJD is a directory of over 400 emerging and professional visual storytellers from over 35 different countries across the continent. 

‘Foreseen: new narratives from the APJD’ will spotlight the work of 13 members from across Africa: Eric Gyamfi, Gulshan Khan, Ayobami Ogungbe, Ngadi Smart, Yoriyas Yassine Alaoui Ismaili, Sarah Waiswa, Mustafa Saeed, Rahima Gambo, Fethi Sahraoui, Robert Nzaou-Kissolo, Hilina Abebe, Leke Alabi-Isama, and Donwilson Odhiambo.

Offering reimagined visual narratives from across the African continent, ‘Foreseen’ explores themes such as tradition, religion, identity, history, memory and daily life. This collection of work celebrates a new generation of photographers who are redefining what should be seen, and how, through the stories that matter to them.

Nuku Photo Festival Ghana is the country’s first festival for photographic encounters, exchanges, and story-telling. It brings together both local and international photographers and visual artists.The Festival includes a variety of events – exhibitions, art talks, conferences, portfolio reviews, artist-in-residency, and more – in Accra, Tamale, Wa and Kumasi.

This exhibition forms part of a continued effort to support and develop opportunities for members of the APJD. One of the exhibited photographers, Leke Alabi-Isama will be present to speak about his work.
