Frederic de Woelmont: Yoff, Dakar (Senegal)

Yoff is a district of Dakar, Senegal. Originally a Lebou fishermen village, the place has since been urbanized but remains one of the most important traditional fishing ports of Senegal and the most traditional neighborhood of Dakar. Fishing and its related activities constitute the basis of the economy in Yoff.

Fishermen vary in number depending on the season. These fishermen are not only local, but also seasonal from Saint Louis, Kayar or the Petite Cote. The fish species include sardines, tuna, grouper, swordfish, monkfish, etc. Depending on the season, the fish caught can be pretty big (more than three meters for large swordfish). The technical means are fairly limited (motorized pirogues) and artisanal fishing is endangered by large trawlers practicing industrial fishing.

Yoff is a village that has retained much of its character. All the people know each other and most of the families have lived there for generations. Community spirit prevails. This makes it a place full of conviviality where it is pleasant to wander. A place of narrow, winding and silted up alleys where each bend allows for new discoveries, beautiful human encounters. A maze that resonates with the sound of children playing and the sound of the yards and backyards activities.

My name is Benjamin Ettinger. I’m currently based in Vancouver but moving to NYC soon. I dabble in various kinds of photography, usually involving people: I travel and shoot people in their everyday surroundings in various countries. I photograph fashionable people on the street. I’m also a beginner studio photographer. I enjoy shooting portraits in natural light, but also creating interesting creative visual effects in-camera with various props. I am pushing myself to be more creative with my editing.
