Publisher's description: In her first monograph, I don't know where I'm going...West African born Swiss photographer Flurina Rothenberger presents portraits from the everyday lives of the diverse West African community in Zurich. The photographer approached people with very different backgrounds and biographies who have established a livelihood in the city over the last 10 years. Having grown up in West Africa and studied photography at the University of Art and Design, Zurich, Rothenberger has made a study of the ambiguities, mores and specters of Africa and its 54 countries. Her poignant portraits of everyday life in the context of economic and social consequences as well as the effects of social coercion, anarchic urbanization and global warming provide a subtle but urgently needed contribution to how we view Africa in the 21st century.
