My book TOUKI – Voyage à Dakar is photo essay on the road trip I made with my Dutch-Senegalese son Noah Saliou, from Amsterdam to Dakar.
In many cities along the way, we stayed with Senegalese family and friends. Some join us for parts of the journey, or put parcels in the car to be taken home. Others share their stories about longing, fatherland and being separated from their beloved ones.
TOUKI was one of the best Dutch book designs 2020 and was on show in Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. TOUKI means Journey in Wolof (Senegalese language).
