Nine months

17A_0309_2

The story of Angola is not mine to tell and I do not pretend that in the nine months I was working there I understood what was going on around me. Sure I can take a picture of an amputee but would that make you understand what was happening in Angola? Can pictures tell us the reasons why things are happening? Centuries of colonialism, war of independence, civil war, oil, diamonds; you name it, Angola had it all. The pictures in this series are about the notion that in Angola there is all-ways more then meets the eye; and about its past that is always present.
