    About The Work

    Tables Turned (Hotel des Milles Collines) is a photograph of two young African girls taken on Father's Day in front of la Hotel des Mille Collines, the real hotel made famous in the film Hotel Rwanda, where hero Paul Rusesabagina saved citizens from the Rwandan Genocide. The photograph was unstaged: photographer Ayana V. Jackson was visiting the hotel and asked the two little girls if she could take their picture. Just as Jackson was taking the photograph, the girl on the left raised her own camera, turning the tables: Jackson, an African-American born in New Jersey, was lifting her camera to capture Africa, and Africa turned its own camera back on her.
