African Middle Classes

Conventional wisdom would tell us that an African middle class does not exist. We’re either desperately poor or rolling in money pillaged from national coffers.

The African Middle Classes project seeks to “present a new but realistic vision of Africa to the public of developed countries”. The project combines academic research with photographic work to draw attention to an Africa that is changing.
