Dremmwel - part I
Dremmwel is a project about man, nature and the machine. I started in January 2015 to embark on different types of fishing boats in the Northeast Atlantic, to illustrate the world of exploitation of the fishery product. Observing the state of our oceans allows us to learn more about the state of our society, its social, economic and political relationships to nature, as well as our ways of producing and consuming
BARÇA OU BAARSAKH
Following the droughts of the 1980s, Senegal’s agricultural sector was in crisis. Many people moved to the coast to take up fishing, which led to a considerable increase in the number of fishermen and canoes in Senegalese waters. At the same time, property speculation and the expansion of Dakar led to much farmland being expropriated, thus further exacerbating many households’ dependence on fishing.
The final blow for fishermen came, however, with the signing of fisheries agreements with the European Union and other countries, particularly in Asia, which placed great pressure on the sector and led to the depletion of stocks.
