A beautiful book, celebrating outstanding moments from the photographer's travels throughout Africa. While bleak associations with Africa continue, Pierre Crocquet shows there is another face to the continent. An elegant, humorous, dignified, reflective and spiritual Africa exists. These uplifting elements are often overlooked or ignored.
On Africa Time is an attempt to portray the lesser-known 'Brighter Africa'. Images of daily life captured show a continent with its own identity and style. Life is lived differently here and the continent has its own interpretation of time - Africa Time. First impressions of the phrase assume it to mean that time is of no consequence. Perhaps the exact opposite is true - how can one enjoy time if one is continually preoccupied with not wasting it?
