Fascinated by the vibes in afro hair salons, and with the will to document the little Africas in all the European capital cities and seize the sound atmosphere, the artist presents unique portraits of customers with the craziest haircuts, just like the ones you see on afro hair salons signs. With the will to create a mix of the two cultures, the artist deals with History, memory and deep-rooted questions of identity in our contemporary culture
