Passages: Photographs in Africa

These stunning photographs are breathtaking in their astounding colour, their movement and vitality, and most of all for their intimacy. Beckwith and Fisher have managed to peel back the covers on African cultures in all their variations, and have captured them with all their energy. This is the vestige of culture in Africa - not buildings or museums, but a living experience expressed in costume, ritual and dance, which makes it all the more difficult for the outside world to see. Through these magical photographs, here's a rare opportunity to savour the dignity and beauty of Africa's cultural riches. [Description provided by the publisher]
