Everyday African Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many sizes and shapes. We invited a longtime amateur photographer and visual chronicler of many everyday events in several African countries (including weddings, church Sundays, beach trips, market days), to share with us some images that illustrate the vibrancy of design in everyday life.

Gambian pirogues arrayed on a beach

Sola Mahoney has chosen some images of canoes along the beach in Bakau, on the Gambian coast. The sharp edges of the canoes, lined up on the beach and featuring brightly coloured designs illustrates both utility and simple beauty.
