A Stranger's Pose

by Emmanuel Iduma, with a Foreword by Teju Cole
£10.99   paperback  Cassava Republic Press (2018)

A Stranger A Stranger’s Pose is an evocative and mesmerising account of travels across different African cities.
 
With lyrical and absorbing prose, Emmanuel invites the reader to share in his travels, and the encounters he made along the way. Alongside these depictions of new places and people is a compelling, and very personal, meditation on the meaning of home, and the importance of intimacy to a lone traveller.
 
Through these vignettes – an arrest in a market in N’djamena, meeting the famed photographer Malick Sidibe in Bamako, speaking with a migrant in Tangier who says “the sea is the only way,” – Emmanuel showcases the generosity of strangers, the power of language and translation, and much more, accentuated by a curated selection of captivating photographs.
