I learned photography when I was very young from my uncle, whose studio was the only one in the city in the 90s. I was there and we were taking pictures of people’s lives. It was only natural that I turned to a career as a photographer afterwards.
I have always been an artist. It was in 2011 during the crisis in Côte d’Ivoire that I became a professional photographer.
I applied for this grant because Africalia is an excellent partner, to spread the message that I carry through this project and also to publicize my work. The scholarship is a great financial support which allows me to complete my budget and execute this PALUCOVID project.
The objective is that this photographic work can participate in an exhibition in order to keep track of the action taken.
