" 'Who feeds you, controls you.' - Thomas Sankara
This little girl appeared to me in the streets of Lagos, Nigeria. My attention was caught by the way she walked, the bread on her head, and her red t-shirt. I am a color photographer and I react strongly to colors. Red brings life to a picture. I was on assignment for the New York Times. The article was about the price of wheat, the growing demand for food, and the economy of agriculture. On one side of the planet, the American farmers flourish, and on the other side, Nigerians struggle to buy bread. This little girl reminds me of the world being a global village and how, for the best but too often for the worst, everything is interconnected. That's why any form of power implies responsibilities. I remain an incurable idealist and always wish for economic, social, political systems which reflect humanistic values. Systems which serve the people and not the other way around."
From Jyotsana's blog post about Benedicte's print:
"As I take in Benedicte's print, I find myself immersed in dialogue with the girl in the photograph. I am instantly drawn to her red shirt, to her feet, to her unwavering posture as she balances the bag of bread on her head. I can almost see the resilience in her stride against the barbed and rugged wall. I think of the small things What is she thinking at that exact moment? Where did she came from and where she is going? I am careful not to make assumptions."
