The series African Jetset is a response to the violence and trauma that has marked the bulk of African migratory patterns, from slavery to economic or conflict driven displacement: 

“I wanted to create a corrective space, an alternate timeline where there was never any interruption: no slave-trade, no colonialization, no external war or plunder. Instead the continent developed along internally prosperous lines, Africans allowed to luxuriate in the bounty of the natural resources of their homelands. That’s the speculative bit, what’s resonant for those of a certain generation, is the inherent glamour and style of Nigeria (and by extension most of West Africa) in the ‘70s. This is a paean to my parent’s generation.”
