Fadiouth é uma vila muito estranha construída com conchas. Até mesmo as casas são feitas de conchas. É um lugar muito calmo e pitoresco para se visitar em Senegal.
Joal-Fadiouth é composta por duas vilas. Joal fica no continente, enquanto Fadiouth, ligada ao continente por uma ponte, fica numa ilha de conchas de moluscos, que também são usadas na arquitetura e no artesanato locais. A vila não tem transporte motorizado: você precisa atravessar a ponte a pé para chegar lá.
As ruas pequenas, estreitas e cobertas de conchas e as casas feitas de cimento e adornadas com conchas contribuem para o clima relaxado e amistoso da ilha. Mesmo o Senegal sendo um país de maioria muçulmana, Joal-Fadiouth tem uma grande população cristã.
Nós visitamos a vila num domingo, caminhamos pelas ruas estreitas, passamos pela igreja e visitamos o cemitério, mas isso é outra história.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
