Pierre Wenzel is currently on fieldwork in Dakar, looking at different uses of cement shaping and transforming the city. His work brings him to various locations related to cement: from construction sites (photo 1) to open-air artisanal cement brick factories (photo 2). The pictures show a great contrast between the grey concrete, the trees, and the bright clothes, suggesting different activities and lives entangled with each other around cement.
