Vivian Sassen says she that she is all about eliminating the idea of “otherness.”
The Dutch photographer grew up in East Africa, and returned to there and southern Africa to take fashion photos of some of its stunning residents. Many are in her photo book Flamboya.
The result is often pure, effortless elegance. I get a kick out of these photos that show the mix of the inherent glamour and style of both people and places from all over Africa. This is Africa, indeed. See more of her work here.
