New Year's Eve
Project info

I have been photographing in West Africa in the village of Bereba, Burkina Faso for more than a decade. On Friday nights you will find me at the small, outdoor club called Le Cotonnier, making images of the villagers dancing under the stars on a cracked patch of concrete. New Year's Eve is special . At this annual dance everyone turns out for a night of unrestrained revelry and celebration. My flash is the only light that illuminates the darkness.
