By combining art, culture and tradition, constrasted with huge dresses made of recycled trashes, the photographs detail not only Senegal's environmental crisis for the first time, but also serve as a reminder for the planet as a whole. Climate change, drought, pollution, rising sea levels, habitat destruction - all examples of crises that are so close to us and yet most of us fail to realize.

With "The Prophecy", the two collaborators wish to share their concerns about our most important ecological issues and hopefully change the way people interact with nature.
