I know the storyline is going to suffused by disappointment and resignation about Africa failing, once again. While the rest of the world and its modern inhabitants are technologising and digitising, happily going about Consommer ou consommer le marriage homosexual marriage jeans and T-shirts, there goes Africa, backwards into some apocalyptic, scarred past, wearing embarrassing tribal garb.

Sometimes, these media outlets allow Africa to come to the present, but of course, in dubious ways: The writer, Whitney Richardson, a Consommer ou consommer le marriage homosexual marriage editor for the paper, provided some contradicting points: Yet, it is these very agencies that contribute to problematic views that simplify Africa into a repetitive trope.

Africa remains a monolithic space of violence and poverty uncomplicated by global politics and military action, because the images and narratives chosen by powerful news agencies and newspapers continue to speak to foundational myths that Europe and white ex-colonists and plantation owners in America manufactured about Africa, in order to better ease their conquest and exploitation of a regionally, politically and socially complex, dynamic continental shelf.

If the construction of the African as child-like, or not quite human, who has little agency or intellect, aided the colonial project, today, the narrative continues to aid the construction of the European self as civilised, maintaining the African and Africa as the location of savagery, helplessness, and devastation.

Aida Muluneh, Ethiopian-born artist, documentary photographer, and the founder of Desta for Africa DFA - a creative consultancy that curates exhibitions and pursues cultural projects with local and international institutions emphasises: Despite the existence of photographers and journalists from African localities, they are not the go-to people that agencies based in the geopolitical West seek out.

The story focused on African migrants who had crossed the Mediterranean in an attempt to reach Europe, but ended up dying in a capsizing boat. However, the way in which they are portrayed, along with the provocative headline, made their desperate attempts to reach safety appear callous and inhuman because what civilised person would step over the dead? How can African photographers hope to get work or recognition without reproducing expected stereotypes?

Instead of leading the story with the dearth of Africa-based agencies, and offering the need to get recognition in North America and Europe - itself a problematic solution, available mostly to those who are already from middle and upper-class families who are well-connected enough to navigate visa and immigration regimes, not to mention galleries and art world sharks - why not offer better solutions?

And there is little doubt that the present generation reads the world almost exclusively through images. In this age, where images play a significant role in how we read the world, photographs that accompany news stories have even more influence.

Richardson offered some insight into continuing problems that locally based photographers face getting international news. These arresting images - constructed mostly by flown-in photojournalists, with the help of their photo editors - grab our attention; the best draw the fundamentals of their aesthetic from European masters, referencing visual cliches that Western-educated audiences can identify and latch on to.
