""Africa you are many things, you are many cultures, many countries, there is hell and hope both cohabiting in your heart…a continent of contradictions…to know you, to research you, to teach you, one must travel your countries intimately by road not by plane, seat with elders and listen to the unwritten past, have a drink and dance with your hopeful and disparate youth—…Oh God please make it possible that I visit every country of motherland…" d’s factories"
"Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer’s paradise, a hunter’s Valhalla, an escapist’s Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just ‘home."
