Dakar-based photographer Fabrice Monteiro has created a photo-series on the environmental problems faced by Africa. Entitled The Prophecy, it is a collaboration between Fabrice and costume designer Doulsy (also known as Jahgal). The duo, along with a team, create elaborate constructions inspired by jinn, the ancient spirits of West Africa, dressed in found materials such as trash-speckled fishing nets and underwater cables.
According to Fabrice,
“Each image took between two and four months to realise. The Senegalese part of the series was crowdfunded on www.ecofund.org, a local organisation in Senegal that works on environmental protection and education.”
