This time my humble contribution to the world of arts at the Biennale de Dakar, in May-June, will be portraits in black and white that I photographed in my neighborhood at Ibnou Diop Wara Talibe. I decided to keep the description of the exhibition very short with the title in Pulaar language, it translates into The road is long.
Laawol ngol ina juuti shares some urban and biotic encounters and wonders, as you go, about our relationship to living creatures and about the probability of a hawk dropping a chicken head on yours.
In case you wonder about the story with chicken heads, well, so do I. It literally happened to me a while ago and I am still recovering from the event.
