Now Available for Pre-Order!    panAFRICAproject: Volume 2

"Photography can transcend time and distance. It goes beyond censorhip, frontiers, borders, and removes the blinders of xenophobia. Photography so easily interprets complex things, ideas, and concepts. Photography is the next best thing to being there."

- Lou Jones

As attention surrounding Africa has expanded exponentially around the world, panAFRICAproject has been collecting momentum & collaborating with entities with similar missions. EVERYDAY AFRICA also uses photography to trumpet the message. We are planning new adventures in the future.

In photography terms, our project will apply a long shutter speed to gain access to tradition and new initiatives, and use a wide aperture to increase exposure of examples of the diverse spectrum of activities. This horizontal and vertical investigation will justify an intense amount of time in each location.


Thank you to Jonathan Petko who helped inaugurate this ambitious project. We could not have gotten it off the ground without his efforts.
