Photographer's Note

Goré Island is an important location in terms of history of slave trade in Africa. There is a small museum in the island called "Maison des Esclaves". This photo is taken in this building. The tourist guide is telling the sad story of black slaves kidnapped and captured in these small roomms in groups of 20-30 persons under inhuman conditions, waiting to be transferred to the new world for sale!
