Everyday Instagram

There are some places in the world we only hear about when something awful happens, when there’s a terrorist attack, natural disaster, or deadly epidemic. But of course, that’s not a complete picture of these places. A photographer and a journalist who have worked throughout Africa want to share what it’s like there on a daily basis, so a couple of years ago they created a blog and Instagram feed called Everyday Africa. It shows exactly that, everyday people walking in the park, going to the market or to school. The feed has 127,000 followers and has inspired similar feeds as far away as Egypt and as exotic as the Bronx.
