Fabrice Monteiro Travelled To The Most Polluted Places In Africa And Created Terrifying Characters Who Roamed Their Midst Dressed In Eerie Debris

Informed by Africa’s environmental problems, Fabrice Monteiro’s photographs aim to highlight urgent ecological issues all over the world. His series The Prophecy is on show at Photo Basel 2017 until 18 June. All images courtesy the artist, Photo Basel 2017 and Mariane Ibrahim Gallery.

Monteiro says: “The Prophecy is a tale of hope and empowerment. Earth has sent her spirits to tell humans that they have the power to reverse what they have done to the planet.”

The surreal figures wear costumes made in collaboration with Dakar-based designer Doulcy, from items found at each location.
