Friday-Project: Senegal Artisan Portraits

Florian and I are still in Africa, participating the Amsterdam Dakar challenge. We just arrived in Dakar and had a day off yesterday.

We used the time to start shooting a portrait series about craftsmen working along the streets or in their little shops.

Today we will head on towards The Gambia where our car will be auctioned to support a health-care project.
