Fabrice Monteiro is a Benin photographer. His ‘Prophecy Series’ explores themes of pollution and the impact of globalisation on Senegal and Africa as a whole. This piece shows a model dressed in an outfit created from garbage, and Monteiro dubs this haunting figure a ‘spirit’ who is here to teach humans to change their ways. This particular piece of African art by Monteiro was shot in Mbeubeuss, once one of Senegal’s green marsh districts. It is now the largest waste dump, which provides space for a marginalised part of the population with its own laws and territorial demands. Monteiro’s collection tackles issues such as ocean waste, global warming and careless consumer culture in Africa. Share his insightful African artwork images with the world.
