Bambui Photography Books

A collection of Photographic Books about Bambui, Tubah Sub Division, Northwest Region of Cameroon.

Following the publication of the book “A Short History & Traditions of Bambui 1700-2012” by Barnabas Chungong Bonu, covering 312 years of history in the village, Fernando Matoso, our project coordinator and photographer was inspired to publish a collection of Photography Books containing the work from his stay in Bambui, which will preserve in the memory of present and future generations how was Bambui like in the period from 2012 to 2016.

This collection reveals the social life, natural resources and traditions of Bambui in the recent years after the construction of the University of Bamenda in Bambui land. The University of Bamenda is the main economic motor for the region and its impact will remain to be studied for many years to come. Is the photographer’s intention that these images will help to compile facts and figures for future local history.

All books are available for preview and sale, follow this link and you’ll be taken to Fernando Matoso Blurb Shop.
