Together with her four-year-old Dutch-Senegalese son, Noah, Judith Quax embarks on a journey in a classic Mercedes station wagon. She travels counter to the flow of migration, departing from Amsterdam and going south through France and Spain, then traversing Morocco and the Sahara, to Dakar in Senegal.
It is the country of Noah’s father. Along the way, mother and son stay with Senegalese family and friends scattered across several countries, who share their stories about longing, homeland, and separation from loved ones. In this series of photographs, the changing landscape passes by, like in a film, but more real. With texts by Quax, Christine Otten, and Vamba Sherif.
