“I joined The Bright Continent back in 2017 when I started learning about photography. As Africans, we are trying to deconstruct the existing stereotypes about Africa these days and The Bright Continent is continuously contributing to this ongoing discussion.”
Max Koffi, Director, Africa in Motion.
“Most people have two basic images of Africa: one that represents "the good" Africa: safaris, tribes, and Egypt's pyramids and another that represents "the bad" Africa: war, famine, poverty, and peril. In short, Africa is either Eden or Hell. Some of us hold just one of those extreme images in their mind, while most of us hold both. However, few of us spend much time thinking about the immense zone of possibilities that lies in between those two extreme images. That's where the vast majority of Africa's one billion people live. That’s what The Bright Continent is promoting! Keep up your brilliant work!”
Jeroen Dunk, Teacher in Geography
"It's The Bright Continent's mission to debunk existing misconceptions and accommodate Africa’s narrative to its inimitable progress.”
