Last August, the Afrique in Visu organized a photography workshop at the Ouidah Tourism Office in Ouidah, Benin in hopes to establish synergies and develop an interest in photography among community members.
The trainers came from various parts of Africa like Benin, Congo, the Ivory Coast, and Burkina Faso. For the said workshop, the participants were given the opportunity to use various Lomography cameras, granting them great creative freedom to test out different techniques.
In parallel to this, an exhibit will take place this coming 8th of November, showcasing the workshop participants’ output for the Biennale Bénin 2012, with the theme Inventing the World: The Artist as Citizen (Inventer le Monde: l’artiste Citoyen).
The exhibition will take place in the Ouidah Tourism Office and will open from November 8 to January 12, 2013.
