2014: Kouyasidia Portraits
In the winter of 2013-14, I traveled to Guinea, West Africa to visit the home of long-time friend and fellow musician, Sayon Camara.
In his home village of Kouyasidia, in the Faranah region of Guinea (near Kissidougou), I stayed amongst some of the most kind, generous, and courageous people I had met in my travels.
The series of drawings below depict just a few of these people, who, amidst hardship and poverty, displayed resilience and commitment to values of community and culture.
There is much more artwork, including drawings from the 2016 trip to West Africa:
