In his introduction to Portraiture & photography in Africa, John Peffer makes a strong plea for African photography to be considered not just as a bizarre 'vernacular' version of well-established Western practice, but as an equal partner in contributing to the photographic canon. In this light it is strange that not one of the thirteen contributors to the volume is based in Africa; and, as far as one can tell, only one is of African origin.
