  4. In 1964, still living the dream of their recently gained independence, Zambia started a space program that would put the first African on the moon catching up the USA and the Soviet Union in the space race.

    Only a few optimists supported the project by Edward Makuka, the school teacher in charge of presenting the ambitious program and getting its necessary funding. But the financial aid never came, as the United Nations declined their support, and one of the astronauts, a 16 year old girl, got pregnant and had to quit.

    That is how the heroic initiative turned into an exotic episode of the african history, surrounded by wars, violence, droughts and hunger.

    From Cristina: As a photojournalist I have always been attracted by the eccentric lines of story-telling avoiding the same old subjects told in the same old ways.

    Now, with my personal projects, I respect the basis of the truth but allow myself to break the rules of veracity trying to push the audience into analyzing the patterns of the stories we consume as real.

    “Afronauts” is based on the documentation of an impossible dream that only lives in the pictures. I started from a real fact that took place 50 years ago and rebuilt the documents adapting them to my personal imagery.

  5. Recently, the Monroe Park Advisory Council announced that a $6.5 million renovation project could begin within a year at the downtown park. Supported by City Councilman Charles Samuels, the council plans to build a playground, add an outdoor theater, replace the fountain and hire private security guards for the park. Such extensive work would require the closing of Monroe Park for more than a year, the council says.
    Concerned that the long closure of the park will interrupt meal programs and kick out the regular users of the park like local residents, the homeless, and students, people in Richmond are starting to organize to oppose the plans.
