Dynamic images from the MFAH photography collection take you to sub-Saharan Africa. Travel from Benin to Zimbabwe and beyond with artists who are linked by geography and whose work reflects the borderless territory of contemporary photography.
Through an African Lens: Sub-Saharan Photography explores a variety of artistic styles and expression from the 1950s to the present. The list of premier photographers from Africa is ever-growing, with artists from midcentury being given a place in the larger history of the medium. At the same time, contemporary practitioners are making their mark in an increasingly globalized culture.
