Photographer's Note

A simple daily scene in the beautiful and colourful Island of Goree.
Situated near Dakar, this small Island with no cars is today a World Heritage and a symbol of the slave trade. First ruled by the Portuguese and then by the Dutch, English and French, this was a point of departure for many African slaves from 15th to 19th centuries.
In spite of its sad history, Gorée is a very beautiful Island with colourful houses and besides the impressive places where slaves were kept, we can also see many nice houses built for the slave traders, churches...
