NATURES MORTES BÉNINOISES

AUDE LE BARBEY

I brought back those objects from a trip I made in Benin in summer 2017. I like to play with objects around me. And in Benin, I had a lot.
Many rubbish invade the countrysides and the cities of the country. Also, the marketplaces or street vendors were full of fruits and dried produces.
It somehow inspired me and I started to collect some of those objects like souvenirs.
This series goes along with images I realized there. They are part of my travel diary.
