Fieldwork Snapshot from Dakar (Senegal)

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.

Looking forward: trees vs concrete.
