Life takes place outside on Africa's streets and squares, not in huts or houses.
This photography is dedicated to the theologian, historian and artist Engelbert Mveng (9 May 1930 – 22 April 1995) from Cameroon. His works feature colors and images from black African art and literature, and his texts are inspired by African mourning. In them, black represents suffering, red is the symbol of life, and white is the color of mourning.
