"I came over with a student visa. I wanted to study computers, but I couldn’t enroll in school until I could prove that I had money to pay the tuition. The first three weeks I slept on trains. I kept asking people where I could find the Senegalese community. Eventually I met a person who told me to go to Harlem because there was an African community there. In Harlem, I found an association for Senegalese people. And they had places to stay for people who were new. I did restaurant and cleaning jobs for a couple of years. Eventually I met my wife and became a citizen. And now I have a security job, so I can finally enroll in school."

CAMPAGNE OVER KLEDINGINDUSTRIE

In opdracht van Schone Kleren Campagne vertrok ik in December (2013) naar Bangladesh en Cambodja om 9 vrouwen te fotograferen die werkzaam zijn in de kledingindustrie. Van de vakbondsleidsters tot het meisje dat 4000 draadjes per dag knipt. De campagne heeft tot doel om ons bewust te laten worden wie onze kleding maakt en in welke omstandigheden. Vanaf nu gaat de campagne lopen. Hier kun je alle verhalen lezen.

Het was geweldig om deze serie te mogen maken en deze vrouwen te ontmoeten!
