In the footsteps of Harakoye

After spending more than fifteen years working for a refugee agency around the globe, I felt the need to take some time off to pursue my personal photo projects. I wanted to make sense of my past and present experiences, and to photograph what was close to my heart. I decided to stay in West Africa where I had been based since 2012 and to continue to explore my surroundings.

My interest led me to Niger, a country I had visited several times to highlight the plight of Malian refugees victims of the jihadists, and of Nigerian refugees fleeing Boko Haram. But this time I was interested in the river. The Niger River.
