“My series Generation Z aims to document the changing urban experience in Lusaka. The images of the emerging middle class question the usual visual experience of Africa. They highlight the emergence of a section of society which is internationally connected, has disposable income and is politically active.
“The photographs presents an alternative vision of a different, 21st century African life rarely discussed in the West. It is important that people in Zambia, and in all developing nations, use photography to help change perceptions at home and abroad. Too often we only see negative images of the African continent and while these images are also true, they are not the only truth.” – Kerstin Hacker
