When I first opened up the page with the fashion article for the March issue of The Bulletin&Records magazine I chuckled to myself – and immediately felt stupid for doing so! There was a “high tea” set up with trendy black men and women showcasing creations by zambian designers, being served by white servants and maids! This is a very alien scene for anyone living in Zambia where the whites have always had the privilege of higher status jobs and education. But times are changing, tables are turning as we speak and a new Africa and Zambia is emerging where the difference between people is determined more by class than race. Still, this photo shoot can be seen as very controversial and perhaps even offending to some. As Samba Yonga, one of the co-creators of the themed photo shoot says: “I imagined that some people would be surprised, uncomfortable and that maybe some could feel offended” but she adds “It’s not directed at anyone.” Peder Bjorling, photographer and fellow swede, who took the photos says it was an experiment and an artistic project rather than a statement or comment on society. What do you think?
