"Two ladies stand on the side of a street as they wait to cross. Directly behind them is a homeless man begging for something to eat. To me this photo is a stark reminder of the ever growing financial differences between the various social classes in Uganda & all over the globe."

"I couldn't walk away from this adorable scene without falling in love with it. I saw this handsome king and beautiful princesses coming from school. The joy of schooling for them is unimaginable and I must admit that I wish I had this joy for school when I was younger. The future for Africa is really bright."

Here are beautiful and empowering words from Zephan Kisham about Africa's future: "The African future is in its peoples' hands. Why? Because for Africa to have its real image, culture should be stored, practiced and be taken as an inheritance. Everybody should care for his culture, keep it and relay it. The African future is bright when we work accordingly with our culture." #maasai #africa #africaday #photography #africanman #africadaily #amazingafrica #loves_africa #ig_africa #africanstyle #africanportraits #travelafrica #african #africanphotography #afrikangallery #africanpeople #peopleofafrica #photographypage #photography #africanphotography #photosofafrica

Baba Musa Gwary shares harrowing stories of life in Dikwa, Nigeria: "This particular image was snapped at Dikwa town, a town invaded by Boko Haram terrorists.

@moriopictures shows the beauty and humility of the human body: "In Africa we have to work hard to put food on our table. The only way we can do this is by using our hands. We have go extra miles just feed our families." #hands #sepiatone #work #africa #africaday #photography #africanman #africadaily #amazingafrica #loves_africa #ig_africa #africanstyle #africanportraits #travelafrica #african #africanphotography #afrikangallery #africanpeople #africanpeople #peopleofafrica #photographypage #photography #africanphotography #photosofafrica
"Photography​ to me means I am the eye witness and messenger who captures peoples moments and pass their story to where it should be reached. Since I am a human right activist I love taking photos that tell a story. I have seen this man since I was a young boy so when he saw me with a camera he told me his story that they last took his photo in 1985 when he was still staying in the orphanage. I decided to take his photo to make him happy and sure he was so happy to see his photo taken again after that long time." Thank you for sharing this beautiful portrait, Milton Millz Aiko Amor!

Camareh Sarah Kamara tell us about her work: "I am a female photographer from Sierra Leone West Africa. I like showing Africa in a positive light. This picture was taken in slums of a girl watching the sunset whilst dreaming about the future." #femalephotographer #sierraleone #sunset #africa #africaday #photography #africanwoman #africadaily #amazingafrica #loves_africa #ig_africa #africanstyle #africanportraits #travelafrica #african #africanphotography #afrikangallery #africanpeople #africanpeople #peopleofafrica #photographypage #photography #africanphotography #photosofafrica
I was searching for the mothers. Women like me who saw the world in multiple fragments. Women who dared against the wind. Women whose hearts were as strong as they were soft. Women whose words created worlds beyond their physical spaces. I thought the sky had moved a little close to my head until, I met with Wangari, I listened to Chiwoniso, and ate from the palms of Maya's offering. In a world where role models can be found anywhere, I wanted women whose bodies resembled mine. Women whose laugh would remind you of mine, women whose arms were wide open to the discomforts, women who dared to speak the unspeakable in their own loving ways. The African woman I've learned must prove herself. She must walk in spaces calling on her ancestors just to be heard. I don't live here. I don't live in validation or approval. I learned from women who bore kings. That a Queen looks them straight in the eye, a queen forgives those who don't know that she is the mother of civilization. Oh, African woman. Your strength emboldens me, your grace uplifts me, your mind a beautiful canvas. Take space among the sacred. Let them catch the wind of heartless masters. Hold on to your land, your mother tongue, and the sacred life. There's beauty here. There's freedom and liberation here.

"Education is the single most important factor which can bring about transformation change in our communities. We are giving an education to 413 children in Mpigi Uganda. We desire to see a transformation of our community through empowered lives. The children were actually excited after we opened up a new block consisting of six classrooms. In this particular photo, we asked them to smile but they were shy, so we asked all of them to say "ffene" which means jackfruit, a popular fruit in our community."
