Bonn


Located on the Rhine River just to the South of Cologne, Bonn is a city in in North Rhine-Westphalia (German: Nordrhein-Westfalen), Germany. As of 2006, the city had a population of 314,299.

Bonn was the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany (German: Bundesrepublik Deutschland) from 1949 to 1990, and the official seat of government until 1999. Some parts of the German federal government have however remained in Bonn, and additionally many international organizations (including United Nations nations) have located in the city, especially in buildings that have become free in the city's former parliamentary quarter.

Photographs and Texts by Guillaume Bonn

Essay by Marc Lacey

"So many people have tried to define the feeling the French call mal d’Afrique which in fact is a disease. The English never had a definition for it, I guess, because they never liked to admit that they were being threatened in any way by this continent. Obviously, because they preferred the idea of ruling it rather than being ruled by it."

In le Mal d’Afrique, renowned photojournalist, Guillaume Bonn, treats viewers to an unprecedented and extraordinarily diverse glimpse into present day Africa, while also sharing the personal context of being born and raised there and how this history informs his remarkable photographs.

Bonn’s pictures explore Africa’s painful history and his family’s role in it. He grapples as well with the many challenges Africa faces in the future, in holding onto its traditions, in maintaining its natural beauty and in grappling with urban sprawl. These threats to the Africa Guillaume Bonn has come to know so well are here captured and reproduced for the first time.

To illustrate a bit of his past, Bonn has also opened up his family photo album which illustrates four generations of family members who called Africa home. Here, we see Bonn’s great grandfather in military uniform during an expedition to Niger and Sudan, or his grandfather hunting a giant crocodile in Madagascar or his father wearing a colonial era-pith helmet while being cradled by his nanny. The album photographs Bonn shares show us the complicated and troubled history of Africa’s colonial past—the trouble left in the colonialists’ wake—while also revealing the personal, human scale of passion for and interest in this unique and unmatched region of the world.

French photojournalist Guillaume Bonn is a third generation born in Africa. He has covered the continent for the last decade, traveling everywhere from war-torn Congo, Darfur and Mogadishu where he was shot at, and kidnapped. He is a regular contributor to The New York Times and Vanity Fair and his work has also appeared in publications like Newsweek and Time among others. He has directed four film documentaries and "Dying To Tell the Story," a 90-minute documentary where he worked as a cameraman, was nominated for an Emmy Award.
