Manju Journal’s creative director Richmond Orlando Mensah commissioned Gabonese photographer and image-maker Yannis Davy Guibinga for this stellar series of images entitled ‘Memories in the digital age and the African archive’ as part of SHOWstudio’s immersive, boundary-breaking project ‘Bodies of Knowledge’ curated by Nick Knight and writer & author Emma Dabiri featuring over 50 International creatives.
.
According to the photographer Yannis ‘I want to pay hommage to the African archive in order to express how cultural practices in Africa are remembered and passed on from one generation to the next. Memory in the digital age means archive to me: the ability to record and gather information, stories and traditions that before the digital age were only transmitted orally. By taking inspiration from post-colonial archival West African photography and their composition, this series explore the notion of memory in the ritual age through an African lens while also using the body of the subjects as spaces where memory takes a tangible and concrete form through traditional African clothes’ Yannis tells us in a collaborative project with MANJU.
