The Grand Market of Lomé

Hi there ! Have you noticed how hard I am trying to write for you guys on a regularly basis ? I hope I will be able to hold on to this pace. Writting for you guys is a daily pleasure. Today , it’s the last article you will be getting realted to my trip to Lomé ( togo). Discover the Grand Market of Lomé, that I have briefly mentionned in the post ” Lomé by car”.  (ici) The Grand Market of Lomé it’s vivid colors, everything and nothing sold on the side of the road . Men & Women that create stuff as if it came out of a hat by magic and that are always negotiating and all the time.It’s a whole culture that you can see drawn in front of you when you go…

Nouveaux Français : From Paris to Lomé

Hello lovelies! How are you ?  A new week and I am  looking for the sun that will help me get out of my bed. A really nice dream. Today, discover the lastest 6-Shirt of the brand Chicken Luv Clothing. This T-shirt is named ” Nouveaux Français” and I really like it. Because, we are all “nouveaux Français” meaning new frenchs, diferent from the past generation and the next one. Being french today is very diferent from being french 20 years ago. I am french, oh yeah but highly influenced by my african origins and the States. It’s in that particular way that ” Nouveaux Français” has meaning. I shot with the help of my aunt those pictures mainly in the Big Market of Lomé ( Asi Gan Me) when the sun was setting. There…

African French

Because I feel french but clearly even more african. I had to go back to Togo from which most of my family is from. I took a couple pictures thanks to my mini sweet cousin ( he is  a mini Michael Jackson you can’t imaigine). Even though it was hot, it was cool and fun. I really wanted to show you that tote I got from the big market of Lomé and on which I splurged ( local way). It’s different from the usual leather or fake leather and from fall tones. Perfect for spring and summer. And what I love about the particular colors is that they stay in tune with my french and americain faces. Perfect. It’s amazing what people do in Togo in terms of accessories and clothes. I mean those bags…

Lomé by Car

Here is the first series of photos from my trip to Lomé in Togo. For those who don’t know about it, it’s a country located between Ghana and Benin, on the Guinea Gulf located in West Africa. I went back after over 20 years of absence for personal reasons and I took some photos. Used to Ghana and Accra, I was very moved to go back. As I spend my days in a car, I could only  shoot landscapes I saw by car. You will be hearing a lot more of this country as I will be going more often than before, for tourism, after 20 years of desertion. My first impression, is that everything looks alike and after a look back,it”s not the case really. The first couple of photos below show the road…
