YaPhoto 2017: Picturing the Present consists of a series of events taking place in Yaounde (Cameroon) from 27 November to 2 December 2017. The programme includes a photography exhibition, video art screenings, portfolio reviews, and a panel discussion on the state of Cameroonian photography today. Conceived as an ‘expo-lab’ and creative hub installed at OTHNI – a Yaounde-based multidisciplinary art space – this edition concludes the pilot phase of the Cameroonian photography platform before the project moves on to its next stage.
