As long as I can remember, nature, animals, landscapes and remote peoples have always had a special place in my imagination.
Being from African descendents made me hear countless stories about that mysterious continent where animals live a wild life and where the landscapes are so vast that it never meets the horizon, it was through these stories that I knew that one day my path and that of Africa would cross.
