  • Description

    SENEGAL AND PARTICULARLY THOSE REGIONS WHICH CAN BE DEVELOPED AS TOURIST ATTRACTIONS ARE THE SUBJECT OF AN EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHS BY MICHAEL RENAUDEAU THIS MONTH IN DAKAR.

    THE EXHIBITION, WHICH WAS OPENED BY THE SENEGALESE DIRECTOR OF TOURISM, IS CALLED "IMAGES DE SENEGAL".

    THE PARTICULAR OBJECT OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS - TO ATTRACT PEOPLE TO COME AND SEE THE PLACES FOR THEMSELVES - GIVES THE EXHIBITION A DISTINCTIVE QUALITY. IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE AN EXHAUSTIVE PORTRAIT OF EVERY CORNER OF SENEGAL. THE PHOTOGRAPHER HAS TRIED RATHER TO CONVEY HIS OWN PERSONAL IMPRESSIONS GATHERED ON HIS TRAVELS THROUGH THE COUNTRY. HIS SUBJECTS ARE THE COAST AND FISHING, FOLKLORE AND LIFE IN THE VILLAGES.

    MR. RENAUDEAU'S TECHNIQUE IS VARIED AND NOT ALWAYS CONVENTIONAL IN HIS ATTEMPTS TO REPRODUCE THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE SENEGALESE COASTAL VILLAGES AND THE CHARACTER OF THEIR PEOPLE.

    THE EXHIBITION, SPONSORED BY THE TOURIST OFFICE, WHO EMPLOY M. RENAUDEAU IS HELD IN THE FRENCH SPEAKING CULTURAL EXCHANGE CENTRE.
