Accra-based art institution Nubuke Foundation is teaming up with African Lens to organize a photo exhibition that will open on April 7.

Founded by graphic designer Aaron Yeboah in 2014, African Lens is an independent publication celebrating African photographers. With the upcoming exhibition, African Lens intends to celebrate the works of contemporary female African photographers.


Featured photographers include Danish-born Somali photographer Amaal Said who captures Muslim women against resplendent backgrounds of fuchsia, rich reds and deep purples; Ghanaian-British photographer Heather Agyepong who explores Lady Sarah Forbes Bonetta, a West African adopted goddaughter of Queen Victoria who came to live in England at a young age; Ethiopian self-taught documentary photographer Hilina Abebe as she captures the life of a young woman in who earns a living from shining shoes to take care of her daughter; and many more.

The exhibition will run until April 29. For more information, visit Nubuke Foundation's website.
