YaPhoto Festival 2019

This 3rd edition is placed under the theme of Remanences and is dedicated to Bisi Silva (1962-2019), committed curator who has constantly carried photography in Africa to new horizons.

«Remanences» question the relevance of the image as a tool of investigation of the world’s mutations. This new edition marks a desire to look at current photographic practices and to renew the perception of the image. Remanence, literally, evokes the phenomenon by which a visual imprint remains, even after its disappearance, in our retina and in our memory. By extension, this concept can also be associated with places when the vestiges and stigmas of the past survive.

Remanences is part of a visual persistence based on a deep questioning of the history of images, related to the absence of visual history specic to Cameroon. Photography has this reminding power sometimes specular. Are our eyes not lost in mythologies?
