Shot in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Ghana, the ‘Flamboya’ photographs stand as paradigmatic for Sassen’s new way of looking at Africa –one devoid of sentimentality and that through poetical metaphors acknowledges the challenges and drawbacks of its complex reality.
Without giving up figurative means, Sassen went on developing a visual language that questions the stereotypes about Africa and ethnic otherness.
