"Allons-y"

Allons-y means "let's go" and it's usually what the motorcycle taxi driver says to grant your ride after you've told him where you're going. After a 35 minute walk around Emana (Yaoundé) I snapped this photo of a woman in a yellow traditional dress I saw earlier leaving the market.

$150 –– 11" x 14" glossy print in matted 16" x 20" photography style archival frame.

"Downtime"

I went to visit Paul Awasume at his art studio on this day but when I got there he was out running errands. Reluctant to call him because it'll ruin the surprise, I decided to roam the neighborhood and chat with the locals. After exhausting all the French I knew while talking to his secretary, she turned on the TV as a way to keep me entertained as I waited.

$75 ––  8" x 10" glossy print in matted 11" x 14" photography style archival frame.

"Veranda"

I was walking past this house when the boy standing up was jokingly yelling at his sister on the floor. I stood there chuckling to myself and watching them for about two minutes as she ignored him. This scene reminded me of all the memories I have playing infront of my grandfathers veranda with friends.

"Corn & Plum"

I was lucky to have travelled during the harvest season. One of the most popular street foods in the market I fell in love with was roasted corn & plum; and this is where it all happened.

SOLD –– 12" x 12" metallic print in matted 20" x 20" photography style archival frame.

 

"Okada Central"

I have vivid memories walking to this market early in the mornings for fresh blockade / kumba bread to bring back home for breakfast. It's also where I haggled my aunts for toys and all sorts of things. I was amazed to find that it still looked the same after all these years.

"Barombi"

Lake Barombi used to be one of the most beautiful touristic sites in Kumba as my mother described it to me. It's one of the oldest radiocarbon-dated lakes in Africa. We hiked for about 25 minutes towards the waterfront when I saw this woman (and a couple of others) walking with planks on their heads. Our tour guide pointed out that the trail is frequently used to transport loads from nearby villages.

"2500 CFA"

The official currency of Cameroon is the Central African CFA franc which is also used in Chad, Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon. 2500 CFA is how much I had in my pocket to offer for the woman in the yellow shirt who was collecting tolls on our drive to Yaoundé from Kumba.

"Bebé"

The normalcy of the woman on the motorbike with her baby wrapped behind her back is my favorite thing about this photograph. Most women carry their babies this way so they can still use their hands freely.

"Untitled"

There are a lot more motorcycle taxis on the streets because they're easier to maneuver in traffic congestion especially over the Douala bridge. I was hanging outside the car window when I took this shot of a woman who was fed up at her driver and decided to walk instead.
