Abstract:Everyday Africa is an Instagram-based project aiming to document moments from daily life. The project was founded in 2012 by the American photojournalist Peter DiCampo and the journalist Austin Merrill. Everyday Africa now also includes the work of a number of prominent African photographers. The project has received a lot of positive press. The author considers Everyday Africa as an important initiative in the northern hemisphere, where one-dimensional, highly constructed images of Africans are the norm. This article contains an interview with DiCampo about the project. Bibliogr. [ASC Leiden abstract]
