    Simone Francescangeli

The coasts of Senegal are populated by pirogues. Pirogues, fish and men, same forms, same lives, under the scorching sun of the earth at south of the Sahara.

My name is Simone Francescangeli, I'm a self-made photographer. I come from the Italian province. I picked up the camera with the intention of being able to find a way to express myself in 2010 and just try to tell the life stories of men closely, especially the ordinary ones, related to the need to be able to live day per day. Until now I brought footstes around in Italy, in Europe, South America and Africa.
