The seventh book in the Ebifananyi-series by Andrea Stultiens is out now. Ebifananyi VII – Staying Alive considers photographs that were a tool in medical practices and research, and the documentation of the history of the Uganda Cancer Institute. In a place where death is often around the corner, photographs freeze time, but also could be said to keep pasts and the people living in them alive. Together with book five and six, this personal publication forms a trilogy. This time dealing with photographic pictures and their roles in documentation, education and the generation of knowledge in colonial and post-colonial Uganda.
The last book in the series (no. VIII) will be launched in Europe on October 19th with an overview exhibition of all photographs from all the Ebifananyi books in FOMU, Antwerp.
