De MIDDEL, Cristina. This is What Hatred Did.

(London): Archive of Modern Conflict, 2015.  First edition.  Slim quarto.  Unpaginated.  Amazing volume combining Amos Tutuola’s novel My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, originally published in 1954 and De Middels images that depict the reality of a country suffering under the heavy burden of African stereotypes.  De Middel plays with the double narrative offered by text and image and the different layers of meaning produced by their union. A grey zone between documentary and fiction, which seeks to cast light on the reality of an ever more inscrutable continent.”  A very good copy in boards showing some light wear.
