Details

Michael Tsegaye’s "Future Memories" chronicles life in contemporary Addis Ababa through topographic cityscapes and poignant views of inhabitants and the old villages that used to define the metropolis. With a medium-format camera and using black-and-white film, Tsegaye constructs a careful timeline of meteoric architectural development within the city. Retaining a durable tension through their emotive undercurrents, he conveys his way of "capturing and immortalizing what will—or already has—faded into the past."
