Africa - For tomorrow by Diversionary Africa - For tomorrow by Diversionary
FULLVIEW IS A MUST :)

I made this for a friend who is in love with Africa as am I slowly but surely... First of all this started out as something nice to hang on a wall, then it moved through to something that meant something to her, then has become something that can mean something to everybody.

I wanted to give an impression of the raw beauty of Africa and I think that it's generally forgotten that it is Africa's people that can express that as well as it's biodiversity and natural landscapes, I also wanted to try and capture the difference in the light which changes as u approach the equator... also to capture the future generations that will pave the way to a new Africa... so I concetrated on children with this piece... there's something about the natural wonder and happiness they exude... people say they are poor and have nothing... I really think that it depends on ur perspective... and what you class as a nothing, for in some ways I believe they are incredibly rich... anyway hope u like it, it's neeeearly finished... each square will be separated and hung on walls in the same configuration, i'm hoping to get each printed out at a2 and then framed in a glass borderless frame.

This is gorgeous! I love all the technical work (that I can catch) as much as I love the general idea.

Really really beautiful.
