Haute couture made of Senegalese garbage
Photographer Fabrice Monteiro captures high fashion made of garbage from a huge dump in Senegal. The photograph is one of a series entitled “Prophecy,” a joint project of Monteiro, costume designer jah gal doulsy, and the Ecofund organization. Senegal’s “Green Imam,” Imam Youssoupha Sarr, has declared a jihad against the human pollution that is burying the African nation.
The Prophecy photos were shot at ten different locations around Senegal, with the models’ garb made partially of garbage and debris found at each site. The photos will be on display at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art until October 25, 2015.
