Description

Jessica Antola's first monograph is a vibrant journey through Sub-Saharan Africa. Traveling mostly by car, she captures the distinctive style and beauty of everyday life in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Ethiopia, Senegal, and Togo. Her striking portraits, landscapes, and vignettes offer an intimate view of life lived in rural villages, big cities, and along the remote roadways between the two. Men dressed head to toe in elaborate African wax textiles share a motorcycle, ancestral spirits bridge earthly and supernatural worlds in masked dances, the rich red soil dusts the lush tropical jungle, a girl in an oversized straw hat steers her boat with a boldly patterned patchwork sail, and a gold jewelry-clad Kumasi King performs a warrior dance. Just as Antola is captivated by how people around the world express themselves in relation to their environments, so do these images reflect this: the astonishing variety of ways people create and define themselves daily, over and over again, through dress and ritual, work and play.
