In Photos: “A Gorean Summer” by Fabrice Monteiro.
The usual photographs I’ve become accustomed to seeing of Goree Island are usually related to the island’s historic past as a port and base for European traders. These black-and-white images by Belgian-Beninese photographer Fabrice Monteiro stand in stark contrast to the colourful yet still and scenic landscapes that often make Goree island seem empty and uninhabited. A Gorean Summer is based on both the beaches of Goree, Dakar and other surrounding beaches near Senegal’s capital.
All Africa, All the time.
