What are the significant conversations in African photography today? This alternative art guide book shows current developments and tendencies? a contemporary manual with a sense of humour that speaks to both young and professional photographers, collectors and people interested in photography. Just Ask! is meant to be an introduction to contemporary African photography, and more broadly, a reflection of contemporary practice. There is also a focus on some of the African photographers that participated in the Goethe-Institut Johanneburg?s portfolio workshop organised by Simon Njami, the Photographers Master Class, which has been running since 2008. This book comprises a series of alphabetised entries on photography written by a range of experts. The book is playful and serious, philosophical and practical, Africa-focused but inclusive of a larger dialogue. The richly illustrated publication is accompanied by essays by renowned authors, curators and art critics.
