Guet Ndaru Mool – Organic photography & portraits. A photo essay with portraits that I have produced on fish skin. They represent a community of fishermen who, as a result of climate change, coastal erosion and rising sea levels, are losing their homes and jobs in a world in which the entire traditional and small-scale fishing and fish processing are at stake. These portraits are accompanied by witnessing voices by the persons involved, telling that all this is happening now. This project includes also a series of handmade prints and a video installation and a short series of black & white photographs online.
Acoustic Africa – My primary ongoing work and a cross over series of photography, sound and texts in and on urban environments in the Sahel and beyond.
Asmari House, or What Happened After Curfew – A photographic study on the Ethiopian institution of Asmari Houses and their role in the Ethiopian urban culture (October 2019).
