Misa Irodia: Work in progress

Misa Irodia is born in Madagascar and lives in Senegal. It is his first exhibition. Besides being a photographer he also works for the Madagascar government. ‘The photography is the artistic part in me. I am happy to be here, I see it as a first major step.'  The work he is exposing is called ‘Men at work: Work in Progress, Work for progress.’ He took his pictures close to his work, being fascinated by the enormous number of people working in construction. ‘The speed of development is enormous. But on the same hand, when electricity goes off, which happens a lot in Dakar, sometimes 8 or 12 hours, the country seems to come to a stand still. Very strange to see. Electricity is a common thing you would think.’
