Aperture magazine’s summer 2017 issue “Platform Africa” profiles the biennales, art spaces, and educational workshops that are changing the shape of photography across Africa today. Edited in collaboration with John Fleetwood, former head of the Market Photo Workshop in Johannesburg, Bisi Silva, founder and director of the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos, and Aïcha Diallo, associate editor of the website Contemporary And, the issue features portfolios by an emerging generation of photographers who have connected through such platforms as the Bamako Biennale (Rencontres de Bamako), Dak’Art, LagosPhoto, and Addis Foto Fest.
