DESCRIPTIONIn the South of Burkina Faso, lies the Royal Court village of Tiébélé. Its distinctive curved mud houses are canvases of abstract patterns, forms, designs and reliefs, thought to be the inspiration of Modernist architect Le Corbusier for his timeless works.
AUTHORAlthough a Civil Engineer in profession, I turned out as an amateur travel photographer having traveled to numerous countries around the world such as Ethiopia, India, Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Cote d'Ivoire, China, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Papua New Guinea, Mali, Benin, Haiti, Cuba etc. My main goal is to capture the uniqueness of the local cultures and the life of the people in the most remote places of our world, emphasizing on syncretism between rare religions and rituals. My pictures have been awarded multiple awards in many prestigious photo competitions and have been published in many books and magazines.
