Publisher description 
  
Uwe Ommer, a sought-after commercial photographer based in New York and Paris, has made a name for himself with his own uncommissioned works, as this book eloquently attests. For the aesthete Uwe Ommer, the bodies of black women represent the epitome of beauty. His photographs are exactly what they show, no more and no less than a homage to female beauty. And of course that homage is paid in the perfect setting, the stunning landscape of Africa.  
  
Calixthe Beyala, born in Cameroon, is one of the leading Francophile African poets. The texts in this book were written especially as a commentary on the photography of Uwe Ommer.
