Overview

"Africa by Road" is a photography book that offers a unique perspective on sub-Sahara Africa. The idea for this book came several months into Dowsett's yearlong documentation work with Action Africa Help International. She started photographing from the vehicle between locations in the field both as a cure for boredom and to further document day-to-day life in rural Africa. The majority of the photos were taken from a moving vehicle, although a few of them were shot within 5 to 10 feet of a paused one.

The included text is versions of blog posts that she wrote during her travels across Africa, thoughts and perceptions of the world passing just beyond her fingertips. Her goal with this book is to show normal people living normal lives, regardless of location, race or gender.

Meet the Author

Dowsett's love of photography started in Nairobi, Kenya where she spent several of her childhood years. She wanted to show the world everything she saw from the starving boy her own age across the street, to the brilliance of beads adorning a maasai woman’s neck.

She graduated in May 2010 with a degree in photojournalism from the University of North Texas followed by two years as a staff photographer at the Texarkana Gazette in Texarkana, Texas. In March 2012 she moved back to Kenya to work with Action Africa Help International documenting their projects in the field and developing promotional material. She is now a full-time freelance photographer based in East Africa.

    Stunning pictures capture life in Africa. Life as it is known by millions of Africans, not just the diluted version quickly snapped by news or Hollywood. Vibrant  and real.
