A vivid overview of Africa by Pascal Maitre, a photojournalist who photographs issues such as desertification, economic grown, and daily life:
Since then, Mr. Maitre has maintained a home base in Paris and spends roughly half of each year on assignment in Africa. Recently, in collaboration with Unesco and Edition Lammerhuber, he published “Amazing Africa,” a collection of photographs that span more than three decades in sub-Saharan Africa. To flip through the pages of “Amazing Africa” is to embark on a visual caravan. On one page, a woman walks beneath a row of towering baobab trees in Madagascar (Slide 8); on another, a group of horsemen is caught amid a sandstorm in Chad; on another, children bathe in an oil-slicked river in Nigeria (above).
