« Les photographes face à l’environnement »

Many Senegalese photographers advocate for a greater awareness for the environment. Their photographic work makes reference to nature as a spiritual place and source of life, shows various ills, is concerned with resources or people and their environment.

In the process, photography as a medium emphasises its claim to the role of a social stakeholder in a variety of ways: it is a portrayal as well as a resourceful medium, it depicts reality as well as its caricatures and dreams, raises questions or invents utopian fantasies.

The exhibition presents a selection of works by photographers of the new generation from Dakar, Angelina Nwachukwu, Omar Victor Diop, Ibrahima Thiam as well as one of the doyens of Senegalese photography, Djibril Sy.
