The series Senegal by Christophe Negrel subtly etches itself into our mind’s eye, developing into a collection of pictures with a notably atmospheric strength.

Christophe ingratiates us into a culture that is tender, loving, harsh and, at times, violent – full of emotional highs and lows shared by everyone.
