Tom Huber - Nguecokh
Photographer Tom Huber and bookmaker Christof Nüssli travel to the small Senegalese village of Nguecokh in the Saloum river delta about 200 kilometres South of Dakar. They return with fascinating portraits full of mystical and poetic beauty, a rare vision of rural West-African life from a secluded sub saharan settlement – and many questions. For months, they exchange Whatsapp voice messages with their host Mamadou, the village teacher. They discuss climate change, polygamy, and religion. He describes the challenges in the education and health systems and recounts old folktales of trees and woods, and charts Nguecokh's path to the future.
