Working on the renovated Africamuseum, I discovered how strongly the building and the collections bear witness to the colonial period and the ideas of the time. The enormous collection of photos and films illustrates this in a striking way. This photo from 1914 ‘Chez les Yaelima’ summarises it all. Look closely at the shadows.
