Unscrambling Africa is a project that seeks to explore urban areas all over the continent, from Alexandria to CapeTown, Youndé through to Addis Ababa to explore the different personalities to African cities. We want to document what urbanity means in the African context. To uncover how we use, define and relate with our spaces in Africa, whether explicitly or implicitly defined. To explore African architecture (does it exist?). To discover how different (or similar) the culture of urbanity is in different African cities, and most importantly to share this information so that more of us can have an idea of how it looks like in our neighboring cities. Hopefully this could be one of the many ways to unscramble our continent using photography and video as a key tool.
