The Christian Vium 'Nomad_Scapes' photo series captures the plight of the Islamic Muslims in Mauritania. These people are becoming more desperate due to the paradigm shift in their perspective of their nomadic lifestyles.

Christian Vium says; "Today 85 percent live in and around the major cities, two thirds of them in the dusty labyrinths of the so-called kebe, urban slum, impoverished, marginalised and with no title to land or access to basic sanitation." Through these photographs, Christian Vium hopes to raise awareness to their situation and their forced problematic ways of life.
