I spent the month of March in Saint Louis, Senegal (also called Ndar), as an artist in residence at Waaw Senegal working on a larger documentary project. It has become my favorite trip I’ve ever taken. I am absolutely fascinated by Western Africa: Senegal is a Wolof-speaking, predominantly Muslim former French colony and this cultural melange is revealed in food, music, architecture, etc. Being a visitor in a place like Senegal is exhilarating: every day provides new questions and answers and offers vibrant, intense and beautiful experiences.
