The South African photographer Guy Tillim (born in 1962) is the winner of the 2017 HCB Award, attributed with the support of Fondation d’entreprise Hermès. With this new series Museum of the Revolution, he observes the effects of decolonisation within the major capital cities of Africa. Their avenues, named and renamed, act as silent witnesses to the ebb and flow of political, economic and social changes. They have become “the museum” of the two major revolutions that have emerged in these countries in recent decades: from colonial regimes to post-colonial regimes, borrowing from socialist practices, then from African nationalism to capitalistic states.
