Rooij, Hillie de
A photographic study in the "visual characteristics that European media use to depict Africa. De Rooij collected photographs from various European newspapers, websites and magazines that show Africa. She analyzed each image by appointing the way Africa is portrayed in it, resulting in a long list of keywords [that she then used] as guidelines for photos that she made in Europe." – Statement from the publisher. The work explores how rules, codes, and clichés effect our views of the world, fusing fiction and reality. Includes an essay by Jan Postma. Edition of 500.
