MAXWELL MUTANDA / ZIMBABWE: POSTCARDS, 2015 How do we explore the realities that Africa faces today? How do we communicate modern Africa to the world? How do we depict daily challenges the continent faces such as access to clean water, lack of power and diversified terrain and habitat? This illustrated postcard take you on a journey to Africa, jolting you into a reality where you don’t belong, where you can gaze at local life as an outsider. However, be advised that not everything is what it seems. This postcard is far removed from it’s traditional counterparts – it do not depict a perfect reality – the idyllic ‘wish you were here’ photographs designed to foster envy in the recipient. Instead, it tells stories of the challenges and constraints of Africa’s people, their everyday journeys and the magic that is Africa. Courtesy of the artist BELONGING  21
