In 2000 I had the chance to follow a theatre group that played in incongruous places. Joinery, old church, car washing station, buchery, car garage are some of the typical places where they performed.
It has been 15 years or so that I walked, with my camera, throughout the world.
I like that.
And yet it started rather badly, at a time of a great love crisis, following a painful separation which led me back to the demons of major loneliness, things which I was not unaware of when I was child… Well, back then, I needed to walk through it, you can trust me.
In Benin the Klui-Klui is adeep fried arachide stick. Klui-Klui is made by groups of women that sell them on the market. It is a basic source of revenue for many families. I love the smiles and the simplicity of these faces. Their dignity is very impressive. Men are occupyed by running the machines. But they also mostly build and repair them. Their innovative capacity is impressive!
