YaPhoto – Yaounde Photo Network is an independent Cameroonian platform dedicated to photography and lens-based arts.

Launched by Christine Eyene and Landry Mbassi in September 2016, YaPhoto aims to support and showcase the work of Cameroonian and locally-based photographers and video artists, through a year-long programme of activities that include exhibitions, screenings, professional encounters, research, workshops and various public events held both in Cameroon and internationally.

The project also ambitions to facilitate a creative dialogue between Cameroonian and international practitioners.

Our objectives are:

  • to raise an interest in photography and related practices in Cameroon
  • to promote photographers by enabling them to showcase their work
  • to create stimulating encounters between image-makers and audiences
  • to foster collaborations between similar photography platforms in Africa and beyond
  • to assist photographers achieve levels of viability and sustainability
  • to contribute to mutual enrichment through knowledge sharing and cultural dialogue.

YaPhoto is open to the submission of portfolios by Cameroonian or resident photographers. For more information, contact us here.
