Afroism: The Aftermath of Africa and The Root of Culturalism
In Part 4 of my "Ism " Series.
I present a photographic narrative of the current state of the continent of Africa.
Exploring the themes of how the last tribes of Africa are coping and adapting with climate change and the challenges of preserving their ancient cultural traditions and beliefs in the rapid modernisation and the aftermath of colonisation of the African continent. Documenting the selected Indigenous tribes in the African regions of Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania. And their shared issues of tribal displacement , climate crisis and the aftermath of colonisation and modernisation. Especially during the current crucial time where climate change and indigenous peoples rights, is an important worldwide topic. I will endeavour to visit and photograph and document various indigenous reservations and communities and tribes.
I will also be documenting a selection of African innovative, Artists, Musicians and Designers of each region, touching on the topic of the rising movement of African Art and Creative Movement. As well as how environmental sustainable efforts are helping the indigenous and its native peoples to protect, educate and preserve their indigenous ways of life, land and culture whilst combating the ever increasing threat of climate change.
