Oath presents to the world a curated view of the sweeping frontier of contemporary African photography. We recognize the need to interpret the great scope of photography talent coming from across Africa by providing a much-needed platform for a diverse new generation of photographers. Our goal is to grant visibility to emerging photographers, celebrate overlooked archives, and champion new talent. There is a vast amount of photographic output across the continent, yet the platforms through which to engage with it both on home soil and abroad are minimal. It is our mission to support these photographers and help tell their stories by being committed to delivering an exceptional print publication. By creating Oath’s print publication to inspire and inform, we have in the processes built a strong platform that seeks to connect the photography community across Africa and to open a dialogue with global audiences. Oath is a leading authority on contemporary African photography. Our content is well-researched, carefully selected, and beautifully presented in print format. We are a valuable source of information to anyone interested in photography and more specifically to those working in the field of African photography. Oath published bi-annually and is based in Cape Town, South Africa.
