TUBABUS AND FATAFIUS ( Growing and living in Gambasse)
Photographer: Rpnunyez .
Exhibit Title: TUBABUS AND FATAFIUS ( Growing and living in Gambasse)
They belong to the proud Mandinka lineage. Every day they wake up to follow the script that destiny has assigned them: to survive famine, war or even early childhood, to play, to provide for themselves, to raise a family, to love, to protect their loved ones, to mourn their absence, to pray...
The project, which portraits the daily life of the remote village of Gambase, Guinea Bissau, is not the product of a travel through West Africa, it is the result of many meetings in which both parties, them the "Fatafius" and us the "Tubabus", look each other in the eyes with mutual curiosity to ask ourselves the same eternal questions about the other, therefore about oneself and about the human condition.
Questions that were partly answered by the village chief the day I managed to photograph him with his large family: I am Kandio, of the Mané family, mandinka, black.
We the mandinkas, the "fatafius", have a name and each name has a story.
You, the westerners, the "tubabus", have learned many important things, but you have forgotten many others.
