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.
