“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.
