Yalla Yalla : I Respect my neighbour !
In Senegal (West Africa), there is a 90% muslim rate and the rest are Christians and atheists. Regardless of the religious preferences, everyone lives in a peaceful environment. This is partially credited to the “Baye Fall” and “Yalla Yalla”, a brotherhood/sisterhood. They are part of the muslim community, Sufi.
Sufism is based on love of the Almighty and the respect of all human being. From the animal, people, the earth, the air, the water to the tiniest living creature; all are significant and vital for the “Yalla Yalla”: Believers of God.
This project is intended to be an exhibition photo at the museum.
