Angéle Etoundi Essamba

The photos by Angéle Etoundi Essamba are not made to cover up but to reveal. She refers again and again to the African culture, to Cameroon, where she was born and lived for the first decade of her life.

What we see are symbols of the pride, willpower and consciousness of women. In her photos, Angéle has recorded the human energy at the ‘moment suprême’ and stopped time.
