Views of Africa
How unlikely that such
different worlds—the fertile Nile Valley and the deserts of the Sudan, a lively
grade-school classroom in Guinea and the solitary beauty of a shepherd in
Mauritania—should exist on a single continent. And how impressive that so much
of it could be contained between the covers of Stefan Schütz's Views of
Africa. In decades
of traveling, which covered 37,000 miles, Schütz trained his keen eye for color
and composition on the landscape, the architecture, the culture, and especially
the people of this impossibly varied and picturesque part of the world.
