Blue Sky Over Dakar

Blue Sky Over Dakar

A mixture of digital paintings and photographers by Nathalie Diserens

The photos were taken during my field research in Dakar, Senegal. They focus on the tension that one feels as a foreigner, if you come to this country. On the one hand you can enjoy the life there, every luxury is available, it is only a question of money. It is possible not to see Africa, poverty, corruption, witchcraft. I painted the sky in deep blue, he is a symbol of hiding the reality and the inability to really understand the life there. The traces of colonialism are visible everywhere, you want to distance himself from it and it can not.
