American documentary and photojournalist Eliot Elisofon (1911 – 1973) “became the first Western photographer to portray Africa’s peoples and traditions without stereotype or derision.” Starting in 1947, Elisofon made nine expeditions to Africa, crossing the continent from “Cairo to Cape Town” capturing life in various countries including Nigeria, Congo, Sudan, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo and Egypt. Elisofon’s photographs (in black and white as well as in colour) have been published in his book The Nile as well as many exhibitions all over the world.
