The perception and treatment of others in a globalized world is one of the cornerstones of our society. Images carry as much weight as the loudest speeches. Quite often, they even help to legitimize certain behaviors. For the different generations of the 21st century, Africa has always been represented as a subcontinent. Those who live there are dehumanized, reduced to poor children covered in flies or, at best, worn as trophets, glorifying the examples of those who find success once they arrive (and are accepted) in the West. But this mechanism of pity, of the single narrative, often even of demonization, tirelessly produces a distortion of reality. There's something to never be the norm in a world where that term seems empty of meaning. What's more, this frustration can only be reinforced when we are dispossessed of one's own narrative.
