In African cities, life takes place on the streets, where public and private spheres blend. A sidewalk inconspicuously becomes a family kitchen or is suddenly transformed into a shop.

The photographs by Lard Buurman (*1969 in Zeist) capture the African city as a site of permanent change and incessant encounter. The images are the result of combining several snapshots in time into a single scene, enabling the viewer to take in vibrant urban space. The eighty photographs in this book 'Africa Junctions. Capturing The City' are accompanied by essays from different authors that reflect on the African city and on the work of the Dutch photographer from different perspectives.
