Dakar Berlin, a Photobook by Mamadou Gomis and Simone Gilges  
   

Dakar / Berlin

A photobook by
Mamadou Gomis (Dakar) and Simone Gilges (Berlin)

Each week one photograph – that was the idea and mode of the photographic interchange held between Simone Gilges from Berlin and Mamadou Gomis from Senegal’s capital Dakar.
Since 2009 the two photographers have been exchanging one picture every week via internet.
The photographs serve as a response and comment to the prior one sent - taken in the very unlike cities and addressing everyday life in the streets, rituals of public and private life und the artistic work of both photographers. The developed references bring the other side closer to one’s own and respectively the familiar is made foreign.

"This project is above all a gesture towards the other, an eye cast on otherness,
singularity, a desire to share, and a need to understand the world. In
celebrating individuality and diversity, Dakar-Berlin also symbolizes distance,
absence and nostalgia for somewhere else. "

(Caroline Niemant, Peeping Tom, Paris)
