Guinean constellation

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Guinea's independence, Mahesh Shantaram, commissioned by the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), went to Conakry. The port capital of Guinea, an economic and political center, has a population of nearly two million. Free of prejudice, Shantaram walks the streets of Conakry and photographs football players, young lovers, or a fashion designer as he wanders. The city becomes a meeting place where the inhabitants of the capital form, in the photographer’s eyes, the contemporary “Guinean constellation” of which he photographs some “stars”. This work is published in the book Mémoire collective. Une histoire plurielle des violences politiques en Guinée, to which Shantaram brings a more personal vision.
