panAFRICAproject - Photographs by Lou Jones

The mission of panAFRICAproject is to create a contemporary, visual portrait of modern Africa. Using photography and heretofore unavailable technologies, panAFRICAproject will establish a repository of images that represents each of the 54 individual countries devoid of the preconceived, Western notions of distress: conflict, pestilence and poverty, i.e. violence tourism. We intend to accurately document the highlights and inner workings of the most progressive twenty-first century continent. With emphasis on cultural identity, industrial progress, educational advances, medical practices, high tech sophistication, and indigenous traditions, we will always allow internal interests to inform our coverage. Our impetus is to place a mirror up to the current human condition and celebrate life as it is for those living it, and all the love and innovation and balance and ordinary spirit.

In photography terms, our project will apply a long shutter speed to gain access to tradition and new initiatives, and use a wide aperture to increase exposure of examples of the diverse spectrum of activities. This horizontal and vertical investigation will justify an intense amount of time in each location.

Lou Jones’ panAFRICAproject runs from September 9-October 20, 2016 at the Joan Resnikoff Gallery at Roxbury Community College. Opening Reception: Friday, September 23, from 6:30-8:30 pm. For more information call Pamela Green at the RCC Media Arts Center at 617-541-5380.
