Thank you, little bohemian year 🎨 You were a curious one following so many artful languages of the soul. A vast stretch of time to do passions & pain, unbridled. For all intents & purposes 🙏🏼 It’s time for post-hibernation truths, action and life ♾

Nile River, Egypt
Perspective

I had just opened my sleepy eyes after a long night on the thirteen hour (😱) train ride between Cairo & Aswan when I saw two men framed by the dawn light. The contrast! The day was just breaking, and one had flung himself fearlessly out the door to soak in every part of it. Who can explain the sensation of dawn? When the air is bursting with the mintiest flavors of dew & silver linings, when the pink colors filling the sky pour their warmth inside you, when the silence is so intense all your senses start throbbing to their sharpest beat.

It may be the quietest part of the day yet dawn tickles your whole being with excitement. And that boy must have known such moments don’t necessarily repeat themselves in life. To sashay down the entire Nile River from north to south at full speed and live a thousand different lives with each glimpse into ancient villages or with each ephemeral encounter with a passenger on the train. Nice to meet you, ma’a salama, godspeed.

The other man was not looking out the window. Quietly tuned in to his phone, idly stretching out his legs, he rode with his back to his destination. A matter of perspective. Perhaps he preferred to merely coexist with the tumultuous beauty taking place outside. Perhaps he didn’t want to know and come to need such lyricisms. Perhaps the end was the destination, not the journey.

~ Ride it out with the full breeze in your face or face inwards, it’s your journey! ~

Dakar, Senegal

Fire and Water  I met these two on a crowded sofa sometime between an Ngor house party and an Electrafrique. He was a force of nature that could not be denied and she the calm of his eye. Their earthly energy took you right in, though you had to be real and ready for anything. Over the months, lockdown or no lockdown you would run into this iconic duo everywhere in Dakar, firing up the nightlife or drawing opposite worlds of people together at the beach, a thousand plans buzzing at once. But wherever they went, the way he had her back and asserted her as his Queen was not a sight to miss. 👑  The protector and the soothing advisor. A formidable combination of power and depth. Fire and Water. Just what the other needs.  We took these photos just before one of Dakar's 8pm curfews. She was 5 months pregnant, and the international borders were just shutting. They were trying to get themselves to France before it would be too late to fly. The battle went on until the last possible moment, and finally, baby girl was born on September 11, 2020 in Bordeaux :)  ''Between the two of us, there was some kind of energy, the very first time I saw your sparkling brown eyes I went straight into your soul. We knew each other from another lifetime. I met you knowing you.'' ~ Khadim to Manon   #treatyourqueen #queen #dakarlives #dakar #dakar2020 #crossculturallove #mixedlove #gambian #senegalese #senegal #frenchgirl #bordeaux #fireandwater #couplegoals #coupleshoot #lovestory #quarantine #2020baby #celebratelove #confinementsenegal #lovehasnolimits

She wants to live life lyrically
Between heaven and earth
Barefoot and bareskinned
And transform all her experiences
Into something beautiful 🎶

Île De Ngor, Dakar, Senegal
Paint my lips red, hibiscus, flower of this bond
Flower of this bondage
Red and perennial
Did you rely on Time?
Or on intuition
To stand here one day
Barefaced as a kiss
Ablaze but awakened
by the dancing shrapnel of dying light
And not fear the end 🌺

Atlantic ocean from Dakar, Senegal.
We were all there once, before ego took over essence. Fearless, unstuck, untutored. Just living out our essence gifted at birth, before the doubts took over.There is a beautiful journey to be made to find that place again and again, a daily swim upstream to find your true name. Where you’re from is below the surface 🌊🦋💎

Casamance

Maya Hautefeuille

✨ People and places from my UNICEF assignment in July in the Casamance ✨  Sights while following UNICEF for a week as they returned talibé children to their parents, supported rural doctors experienced with Ebola now care for COVID-19 patients, and as they encouraged new mothers to register the births of their newborns to start life with official recognition.  700km away from Dakar, in a world away from dancing and parties... I appreciate these moments dressing down, walking in nature, getting to know other issues & meeting inspiring people ⭐️   #summer2020 #onassignment #unicef #childprotection #photojournalism #humanitariansector #westafrica #senegal #casamance #kolda #bignona #sedhiou #talibe #returnees #daara #covidcases #etatcivil #birthregistration #ruralhealthcare #rainyseason #unitednations #photostories

The licence to use your body as a paintbrush... 🎨🩰 It amazes me that whatever comes your way, the movement of your body is your own infinite domain, your personal truth and freedom. You may forever give definition to any gesture, sketch out any feeling, master any position, expand your limbs into any interpretation of your heart's stories, burdens and desires.

“When you find yourself at a new beginning, just give hope a chance to float up. And it will.”  What is Hope? A prayer transparent as clear water and floats up when we make space for it 💙  Finding a little tropical Japanese looking garden where I least expected it, with green waters & a wooden fountain, overlooking the Atlantic ocean 🤩 Sitting by you I felt the continuity, calm, wonder and beauty that you bring 🇯🇵🎍🇸🇳   #zen #japanesegarden #hope #renewal #water #portrait #greenpool #popenguine #watergirl #symbolism #beyourself #senegal #japan #reflections #prayer #calmmysoul #travel #nature #westafrica #atlanticocean  #travelers
