Jason Florio – at work – photographing the village chief (the ‘Alkalo’) of Kalaji, The Gambia, West Africa. Filmed by Helen Jones-Florio (for ‘Wobbly Productions’) on ‘A Short Walk in the Gambian Bush – a 930km African odyssey’. The portraits of village chiefs and elders became an award-winning body of work: ‘Silafando – a gift to you on behalf of my journey’
BIG thanks to all who have jumped on board so far, with their support for the ‘River Gambia Expedition – 1000km source to sea African odyssey’. Your support and belief in what we are endeavoring to do is just what we need, to help bring this photography documentary to realization.
More updates coming soon. Please help to spread the word! Kickstarter
Many, many thanks
