From 6 to 23 June, winners of international photo contest POPCAP will be presenting their African-themed images in Basel's Münster Square.
Each winning series consists of 10 to 25 images, addressing some of the issues affecting Africa. The winners – the Anhua Collective (Spain), Dillon Marsh (South Africa), Cristina de Middel (Spain), Alexia Webster (South Africa) and Graeme Williams (South Africa) – were chosen from a pool of over 360 international entries.
The winning projects
The series "Future Plan" by the ANHUA COLLECTIVE (David Rengel and Álvaro Laiz, ES) allows formerly abducted children in Uganda to speak about both their past as victims of coercion, and their hopes for the future.
In her series "Afronauts", CRISTINA DE MIDDEL (ES) looks back on Zambia of 1964 – when the dream of space travel captured the country's imagination.
"Landmarks" by DILLON MARSH (ZA) captures the relationship between people and nature in Cape Town, and explores how nature adapts to human intervention and vice versa.
ALEXIA WEBSTER (ZA) explores both the history of her family and that of Apartheid in the hinterlands of Hogsback in "A Village in the Clouds".
GRAEME WILLIAMS (ZA) focuses on the subtle shifts that have taken place in South Africa since the first democratic election in 1994. His images depict the changes that have occurred – and suggest those yet to come.
