Goals as a photographer:
In February 2014, I plan to photograph my home country Cote D'ivoire, documenting the effects of the 10 years of civil unrest on those who experienced the turmoil. Additionally, I will document the infrastructures put in place by the Ivorian government to aide the recovery of my nation.
In 5 years, as a West African, I would like to photograph the 50 states of the United States, documenting the landscape, and people in their natural environment. Hopefully by 2018.
