Aïd el-Fitr (la Korité) festivities in Medina – the images

Celebrating the end of Ramadan in Medina, typical African neighbourhood of Dakar – in images. Peeking in on the women in the hair salons, the children in the streets and the beautiful, festive wear for the occasion.

Includes spontaneous bike tricks from passing youth.

…and, our fair dose of what I like to call “lounge photography” where, in essence, we sit on chairs and wait for the subjects to come to us. Luckily, on a street in Medina there is always plenty going on.

Enjoy!!
