CommUnity

Social documentary project commissioned by Reignite Action for Development and developed in Bambui, Cameroon, Africa.
The project explores our core human values, addressing the problems faced by a fractured society and elicits from this broken place the human values that unite us across cultures.
The work is the result of seven years’ traveling through Mozambique and Cameroon. The journey was made alongside Reignite, a UK Charity aiding rural communities to break free from their poverty cycle.

During my seven years working for Reignite, worked in challenging situations and ultimately placed the community needs and expectations first. I lived and assimilated different cultures and customs, as a passenger participating in the rhythm of these communities’ lives. I saw the direct and positive change we sparked in the community and moreover, saw this change carried forwards by others.
