Webb’s photograph of a group of thatched-roof homes—a common architectural form in Tanganyika (Tanzania) in 1958—arranges their colorful walls along a low horizon, emphasizing the expanse of blue sky above. Although his assignment was to create a portrait of an increasingly technologically advanced and modernizing continent, Webb also documented indigenous architecture, like these round houses, throughout his journey.
