Emeka Okereke leads a busload of artists and photographers for the Invisible Borders road trip of a lifetime as they search for new ways to portray their continent and explore their art.
“A photograph is a window, and not the view. Don’t photograph what you see, photograph what you feel,” says Emeka.
It is something he will try and teach young photographer Lilian Novo, for whom the trip is a first attempt at art photography.
The group set off from Lagos and head overland to the Democratic Republic of Congo in a minivan, but soon discover that driving across Africa during rainy season presents environmental, psychological and bureaucratic challenges.
