Urban Africa is a popular Flickr group that showcases growing urban life in various African cities. There is a tendency to portray African landscape as bare and the focus is primarily on wildlife. This group is a much needed breath of fresh air, showcasing the African metropolis – highlighting modern African culture in urbanized centers. Enjoy.

Africa has untold vital urban spaces and a rich legacy of a 2.000 years long history of urbanization. However, in the vast majority of flickr groups related to Africa, nature and wildlife photography are predominant. Africa appears as a rural and ‘exotic’ scenery where humans, animals and landscapes build a more ore less harmonious unity.

This pool is for photography of African cities and towns. Architecture, parks, people, sculptures, streets, traffic – anything in the urban context.
