Fabrice Monteiro is a Senegal based artist. His images uncanny and occasionally science fiction in nature confront the darkest parts of humanity. Check out his prophecy project – a collaboration with Senegalese costume designer Doulsy and Ecofund Organization. It raises issues around climate change – the images were shot at ten of the most polluted locations around Senegal. One of the locations was Tambacounda in Eastern Senegal where annual bushfires destroy thousands of hectares of precious forest.

He will be exhibiting as part of the 1:54 Contemporary Art Fair at Somerset House in London October 15-18, 2015. http://fabricemonteiro.viewbook.com
