Trevor Stuurman will present his Life through the lens photography exhibition at Doyle Wham between Friday 13 May and Thursday 2 July.
Praising Doyle Wham, Stuurman said: “I feel like so much has been stolen from Africa and it’s about getting it back.”
“That’s why I think photography is such a powerful medium – it allows us to tell the story and show what [the continent] looks like now – to cultivate a better understanding of what Africa is.
Stuurman’s work at the art gallery will be part of the UK’s annual London Gallery Weekend.
