Publisher's Description

Selected as Book of the Week by Roger Eberhard

With Myopia Hillie de Rooij shows us that we do not simply look at pictures. There are rules and codes involved that affect the way we look at images of the world around us. And this surely counts for images of places we have never been before. 'Myopia' deals with the way Africa is depicted in Western media and the fact that this is often based on a stereotype image. Journalistic codes demand a certain degree of stability. Stability provided by familiar foundations such as vocabulary, perspectives and subject matter. We also use our memory to interpret images. But in search of recognition we leave ourselves stuck in clichés.
