Banjul Gambia Art
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have kicked off their Royal Tour with a first visit to The Gambia. Their Royal Highnesses will begin their trip with a royal visit and will attend several events, including a visit to the National Museum of the Gambian Armed Forces in Gbenga, the country's capital. The prince is on his first visit as part of a two-week Africa tour to Gambia, which also includes visits to the Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria. This is the third time the prince and his wife have officially visited the country, but it is the second visit in the past two years.
The Gambian art scene, which is still rarely seen in its scene, was also a surprise to Her Royal Highness.
I love meeting new people and hearing their stories, and photography is an opportunity for everyone to share their story, overcome language barriers and personal backgrounds so that everyone can get involved and share their perspective. I hope to influence the wider community by showing Africa from a different perspective, by not necessarily focusing on poverty and violence, but by seeing it through the eyes of young people. My photos are intimate and open and are the result of several photography workshops that took place at the Gambia Senior Secondary School in Banjul and were organized and taught by me. What follows are a series of articles on why I made the pictures, why they are important and how I can add a new perspective to images from Africa from the inside that does not take on the usual outside.
If you believe you are the victim of a crime in Gambia, please contact your nearest police station. In the distant future, I will be involved in the organization of an exhibition of my photographs from Gambia in November. I have tried to get the British High Commission involved and I am looking for a suitable showroom in Gambie if anyone has proposals that would be very welcome.
Finally, I appeal to all of us in proud Gambia to defend our dignity and to show the eccentric Hood Council that we will not stand idly by and watch over it. We are doing everything we can to lift the façade of artistic virtue and confirm that Gambian art has come of age. From the late 1990s to 2007, I curated a series of exhibitions in which Gambia art was a fixture on the art calendar.
At the end of 2004, there were only a handful of exhibitions in Gambia and only one in Senegal. Tourism had also declined dramatically, and Senegal, which surrounds Gambia on three sides, had closed the border to smuggling.
The first written mention of Gambia is in the 16th century in a letter from the King of Guinea-Bissau to the King of Senegal. At various times it was part of various West African kingdoms, including the kingdoms of Gueckedou, Gwoza, Cambia, Togo, Senegal and Senegal. The West African trade network expanded when early empires established contacts with the people on the Gambie River. Trade was crucial for the Gambia and became one of West Africa's most important trading partners and a major trading partner for West Africans.
The Gambia became part of the large British colony of Senegambia, which also included what is now Senegal and the Gambia.
The Gambia is the mouth of Senegal into Pac-Man, and the former British colony is enclosed on three sides by the Atlantic. The country is named after the Gambian river that flows from the north-west to the south-east corner of the west coast of Africa. At its mouth, it runs through Senegal and into the smallest country in Africa with a population of about 2.5 million people.
Gambia is located on the west coast of Africa and covers an area of 338 km from the north - west to the south - east of the country and has a population of about 2.5 million people.
The Gambia River is the dominant geographical feature of the country and is the main source of water for many of its citizens. Gambians and home to a large number of indigenous tribes and ethnic groups such as Gambians, Guineans and Nigerians.
Harmony between ethnic groups is the general rule, given that there is a high degree of cooperation and mutual respect between the different population groups in the country. Gambia is home to a large number of indigenous tribes, including the Gambians, Guineans, Nigerians and Nigerians.
The sectors covered include agriculture, mining, fisheries, oil and gas extraction, construction, textile production and manufacturing, and tourism.
The Yundum College Library in Banjul has over 4,000 volumes and the library of the Gambia Technical Training Institute has 3,880. In the UK, the first exhibition of contemporary African art, which takes place in October at Somerset House, is a great place to discover contemporary African artists. See is available in several London bookstores, including the National Library of Wales, the Royal College of Art in London and the Metropolitan Library in London. Traditional West African troubadours and historians, known as griots in Wolof and Gewel, provide entertainment and observations to preserve the cultural heritage of the West African Republic and its people.
