recent projects

Ponso the Chimpanzee

Photography and Video.
Ponso is an adult male chimpanzee. He came from a laboratory near Monrovia. He was set free with other chimps on an island, near the coast in Cote d'Ivoire. The other chimps died and Ponso was moved to a smaller island near Grand Lahou, where he is looked after by a local man named Germain.

Care Cote d'Ivoire

Photography.
CARE wanted to evaluate the impact of their project on the lives of groups involved in the project, which was about the role of Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs) in empowering poor women in Côte d’Ivoire. My role was to capture the lives of the women in the group and the changes the project brought them.

Microsoft Mobile Math

Photography and Video.
Video and photography for Microsoft Math, used on the website. Introduced in Tanzania, September 2014. Students can take part in math exercises, read theory, learn from examples, and take tests on their mobile phones, while working with other students on-line.

Mobiles 4 all

Logo Design and Website Design.
Throughout Africa, millions of people, especially women, still live without electricity, telephones, internet, and basic financial services. The phone is 4-inches and 100 grams of modernity. It’s a bank to save for school fees, light to study by, a mentor for better farming practices, and a hotline to quality medical advice.
