Natalie Obermaier
Natalie Obermaier's gaze is honest and sympathetic. Absent of pretense, shyness, or posturing, nothing comes between Obermaier and her subjects. Every image expresses the subtle context of his unfettered access. When they gaze directly into the camera, her subjects seem to be looking directly at us. The conjecture of photography is shaped with contradictions... ambiguously-specific, empowered-vulnerability, truthfully-inaccurate. The nuances of these paradoxes are burned into the silver halide crystals of Obermaier's film.

Sub-Saharan Africa is highlighted in this eighth edition of the Urban Eye festival; a territory of 48 states located south of the Sahara, so vast that it might seem futile to hope to encompass it and to define its contours in terms of photography. The pitfall is indeed to approach the subject from the angle of stereotypes, of the postcard in search of picturesque and a certain miserabilism where it would only be a question of slavery and colonialism. Generalities cannot take precedence over the contemporary reality of this vast territory, above all remarkable for its diversity. The vitality of current photography in Africa is a reflection of this excitement of a continent in turmoil in a globalized world; an emerging contemporary photography carried by a young generation of talented African photographers.
