the colour of water
I was lucky enough to join Vicuna, his brother Gérard and a bunch of wonderful people on a recent trip to Burkina Faso. This is the first album and an encounter of the Northern town of Nouna. Here, Gérard and his Partners, from the French city of Saint Priest and Germanys Mühlheim, are active in developing aid for more then ten years. One of the prime examples are these fountains, that can be easily used by spinning the wheel and which operate through a closed pipe-system, so the water can not be spoiled or infected through an open part. There is also a clever maintenance system. Villagers pay a small fee for using the fountains, like a flatrate pass. This money goes to technicians, who come from the village and who were educated to repair the fountains. Once a device breaks down, they are able to buy the needed parts and fix it...This photo was shot on film. Taken by wil6ka with a Fujifilm GF670 loaded with Fuji MS 100/1000 film in Burkina Faso.
