The exhibition takes its title from the Hotel Panorama in Luanda but also refers to the ownership and power implied by the construction of views of landscapes. The photographic work shows the visions of the past and present of Angola as witnessed through its architectural geography: hotels, swimming pools and cinemas – mid-century modernist buildings which once served as monuments to colonial leisure, have been abandoned, repurposed, and are being silently reclaimed by the lush natural landscape. These urban spaces bear witness to the country’s troubled history of colonization, decolonization, civil war, gentrification and globalization.
