“La nouvelle semence”
This work is set in the forest villages of Cameroon (Akonolinga / Yaounde), moving away from the classic reportage “documentation of the actual” and instead leveraging the strong iconographic meaning through which photography can stimulate the reader to go further on.
It is thus the concepts that surround the photographs to be special and not the people portrayed. All the people are also the key actors of an ambitious project- the creation of a large cooperative of farmers. This means a possible redemption- to sell the products of their land at fair prices , create a force against the environmental difficulties, the exploitation, the isolation, which have adversely affected the lives of entire communities.
