informed by the critical environmental problems that plague many parts of the african landscape, photographer fabrice monteiro, costume designer doulsy (jah gal) and the ecofund organization have collaborated on a harrowing series of photographs to visually represent the urgent ecological issues. ?the prophecy? project, shot at ten locations in senegal, features intricately costumed figures interacting with the astonishingly-polluted surrounding scenery. their meticulously built garb is partially made from garbage and debris found throughout the site, reflecting the atmosphere and state in which each destination was found.
