Christophe Negrel’s Senegal photos are certainly true show-stoppers. Audiences are bombarded by a countless number of art projects on the Internet that send their message out through vulgar shock value. This is a logical attempt for artists to unsettle their viewers, create discussion and become memorable.

Christophe Negrel’s Senegal photos achieve just that "by stepping away from being purposefully shocking," explains Ross Bryant. He goes on to say, "Christophe focuses his lens and the viewers’ attention towards the humanity, subject and personality of the people in front of the camera."

Negrel’s photo series achieves a raw demonstration of the very interesting culture of Senegal that has violence, tenderness and love all inherently integrated into it. It is a stunning project that is powerfully emotive.
