Picturing the Present

After a pilot edition held in November 2016, YaPhoto is now developing a number of international collaborations that will culminate in a programme of events in Yaounde in November 2017.

Themed Picturing the Present, YaPhoto 2017 will seek to examine the local photographic gaze, question image-making processes and address the gaps between society and visual representation. This edition will also intend to create a dialogue between local practitioners and African and Diaspora photographers and video artists.

Programmed in 3 phases in London (May 2017) and Tokyo (August 2017), YaPhoto 2017 will conclude this years events in Yaounde with a photography exhibition, video art screenings, a panel discussion and portfolio reviews.

The full programme of events will be announced end of October 2017.
