SELECTED PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR MEMORY, OUR FIRST CALL FOR ENTRIES!

We are thrilled to announce that the following photographers have been selected for Mambu Badu’s inaugural call for entries, Memory:

We will be producing a PDF magazine to highlight their work, which will be released this spring. Later this summer, we will also feature their work in a gallery exhibit. We must also give thanks to everyone who participated in our very first call for entries. We received some amazing submissions and it was hard to whittle the list down.
We are definitely planning future calls for entry so be sure to subscribe to our posts, follow us on Twitter (@mambubadu), ‘like’ us on Facebook, and email us (themambubadu@gmail.com) to stay up-to-date on the latest news from Mambu Badu. Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to making 2011 a banner year!

THE BEST HAS YET TO COME

Mambu Badu is a photography collective that seeks to find, expose, and nurture emerging female photographers of African descent.

“Mambu Badu” is an adaptation of the KiSwahili phrase “Mambo Bado” which is loosely translated as “the best has yet to come.” At this moment, we dwell in an exciting space of possibility where we can grow as artists. We invite other female photographers of African descent to join us in this journey. We are approaching our art and this collective with a humble heart, a curious nature, and a persevering spirit.

Welcome.
