(Senegal / Dakar, West-Africa)  This is a beautiful image of young women preparing fresh fish to be sold on the beach market. My heart often aches for these hard working women. As a woman they are not highly valued in a country like Senegal. Among themselves, women also ‘play tough’ and there is often a lot of rivalry among one another; afraid to not be seen, to not be loved.

Therefore, it has become my mission to portray African people in a beautiful, natural way. Showing them how special they are, treasured by their Heavenly Father. Our work is about honoring God and empowering Africans, especially young people, so they can see themselves through the eyes of God instead of society’s and embrace how loved and talented they are.
