Harmattan 2017

The Harmattan is a northeasterly wind. Between November and March it blows across West Africa, covering entire cities in dust. The Harmattan was the first trade wind. It enabled colonial traders to power their ships from Africa to Europe - ferrying their trade in slaves. This project consists of twenty-four images, drawn on the windscreens of cars across Dakar, Senegal. They reflect on the racism that is structured into the limits and flows of global mobility.
