Christophe Negrel: Senegal Series

Work / Photography

Christophe Negrel’s Senegal series packs a hell of a punch!

We get to see swathes of photography on a weekly basis and mostly we are spoilt for choice as to what to show you all. But every now and then we stumble across a photographer that stops everyone in their tracks, and so it was with Christophe Negrel’s powerful Senegal series.

The series almost immediately begins to subtly etch itself into your mind’s eye, developing into a collection of pictures conveying atmospheric strength. By stepping away from being purposefully shocking, Christophe focuses his lens and the viewers’ attention towards the humanity, subject and personality of the people in front of the camera. Christophe therefore ingratiates us into a culture that is recognisably tender, loving, harsh and, at times, violent – full of the emotional highs and lows shared by everyone.
