Photographer's Note

Il y a l'Afrique des villes et celle des brousses.
Il y a l'attrait de la modernité et puis la tradition.
Il y a ceux qui regardent le passé sans comprendre l'avenir.
Il y a l'animisme et l'Islam.
Il y a la frime et la faim.
Il y a la violence et les sages.
Il y a la natalité galopante et la mort qui rode.
Il y a l'arbre à palabre et la musique des tam tams.
Il n'y a pas une Afrique.
Elle est plurielle.

****

There is Africa of the cities and Africa of the bush. There is the attraction of modernity and then the tradition.
There are those which look at the past without understanding the future.
There is the animism and the Islam.
There is brags it and the hunger.
There is violence and the wise ones.
There is the gallop birthrate and the death which grinds.
There are the trees with palaver and the music of the tam tams.
There is not one Africa.
It is plural.
