About A Strangers Pose: A mesmerising collection of striking travel snapshots

Stories remembered and imagined, and images by acclaimed photographers. Also a Stranger’s Pose draws the reader into a world of encounters, in more than a dozen African towns. Iduma blends memoir, travelogue and storytelling in these fragments of a traveller’s journey across several African cities. Inspired by the author’s travels with photographers between 2011 and 2015. The author’s own accounts are expanded to include other narratives about movement, estrangement, and intimacy. These include: an arrest in a market in N’djamena, being punished by a Gendarmes officer on a Cameroonian highway and meeting the famed photographer Malick Sidibe in Bamako.
