The photographs of the Africa Series, document an intimate, personal dialogue and familial relationship between the photographer and the people of Egypt, Ghana, Mali, Guinea, Sudan and Senegal. Words will offer meaningless descriptions of the conversation evident in the photographs. Africa, as documented by Jules Allen, speaks to the viewer in it’s “own sweet way.”
An excerpt from Michele Wallace’s Introduction to the book tells us, “perhaps even more essential to us blacks in the U.S. than the aesthetic visions such photography supports is the raw, unmediated information about the world we don’t yet sufficiently understand. Allen prides himself on surprising the life that lies just around every corner. These photographs are telling us at least one hundred very concrete things about that which we may think we already know but don’t know nearly well enough, the streets and landscapes of contemporary African cities.”
