C&C promoting a positive image of Africa

Most pictures from Africa are editorial by nature, made for newspapers and magazines. Because these pictures solely focus on creating stories that have a news value, pictures of famine and hunger, warfare and disasters are prevalent. While such pictures naturally have relevance the overall impression they create is a somewhat one-dimensional image of life in Africa.
