A photographer snaps a group of visitors at Le Monument de la Renaissance Africaine (Monument of African Renaissance) in Dakar, Senegal. The monument, built by the North Koreans under former President Abdoulaye Wade, is very controversial as the scantily clad figures are seen by many to be un-Islamic, sexist and a waste of $27 million.

Good morning! I’m celebrating my seventh year in West Africa by taking over the @everydayafrica feed this week with recent work and adventures from around the region and beyond. Here is a snap from one of my favorite spots in my home base of Dakar, Senegal (if not the whole region). The sun sets on Virage Beach on December 31, 2013.

A poster depicting the Monument of African Renaissance, with ‘Dakar’ loosely written in Korean, in the style of North Korean propagandists posters, in Dakar, Senegal. The monument, built by the North Koreans under former President Abdoulaye Wade, is very controversial as the scantily clad figures are seen by many to be un-Islamic, sexist and a waste of $27 million.
