Photo Contest “Together We’re Stronger”: A photo a day.
Today, Chama Chereau brings us to Burkina Faso with this amazing photograph, sold in favour of refugees, via the NGO SINGA.
50% of profits made by selling the photo will be donated to SINGA, which does an outstanding work in accompanying refugees in their successful insertion in France & Europe.
Graduate of a photography school (EFET), Chama works with both film and digital cameras. The first, she uses it to deal with everyday life, emotions and suspended time. She uses the second when the time accelerates!
Burkina Faso, literally “Land of honest men”, is landlocked in the heart of West Africa. Burkina translates as “integrity, honor” in Moré and Faso translates as “territory, land or homeland” in Dioula. A land rich in images and colors.
Encounters and faces have made possible to constitute a mosaic of portraits representing the effervescence of Burkina Faso.
This photographic project was born from a trip to Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso from January to March 2016.
This photograph was taken during a stopover at the Banfora Waterfalls with the team that constituted the humanitarian project.
This image represents a fullness, a moment of serenity after months of work on this project.
This young man very naturally laid down in this waterfall, I only had to trigger my film, and seize this moment.
