Project description

I represented an empty Africa at night and made portraits of people of the same place without any background to take them out of their natural context.

Bronislaw Malinowski, the pioneer of anthropology field research, taught us about reinterpretation of the areas and my experience proofs that each situation could have many interpretations and that the choice of the key is made by the person who gives birth to the project.
