This week for Amazing Africa, we bring you photographs from two different ONE members. Gunnar Salvarsson is a professional photographer from Iceland who specializes in portraits of people from all over the world. Julienne Oyler recently returned from a 6-month trip through West and East Africa. Take a peek at these stunning moments that these two have captured on film. These remarkably vivid photos show what Africa truly is: amazing.
