As we all know, life can be so different. Often it just depends on where you are in time and space, and suddenly, everything is quite strange and unfamiliar. Lui, a small village in «somewhere in nowhere» in the southern part of Sudan, is such a place of «remoteness». At least this can be for someone who comes from an industrial and wealthy Western country. Nevertheless there is poverty and a lot of needs in Lui, this book wants to show something else. I didn’t want to tell a «typical African story» with its inevitable sadness factor. To undermine this, I decided to portray the houses of the village of Lui. At a closer look, the resulting images of the huts, tell so much about themselves and their inhabitants. So what we get to see here is the beauty of architecture without architects. Simplicity and sobriety as a sign of human qualities. Recycling, as an expression of fantasy. Details, which express the owners unique and special handwriting.
