I traveled to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, West Africa, in January of 2009. Using a plain black piece of velvet cloth as a backdrop, I took portraits of Mauritanian men, women, and children that I met on my travels. Most of the portraits featured are Pulaar people from the south, but there are a few portraits of some black moor men and women and one portrait of a male white moor from the central part of the country. During our journey, we had very little contact with the white moors; of the few white moor women I met, I was unable to convince one to participate in the project.

Mauritania's endless sea of sand dunes hides an open secret: An estimated 10% to 20% of the population lives in slavery.
A third of the population of Mauritania lives, directly or indirectly, from artisanal fisheries. Bamba Fall, a unionist fisherman, invites us into the hectic activity of the port of Nouakchott: the tragic stories in the sea of old fishermen, the hard work of fishing gear from blacksmithing, imaginatively recycled materials, the sale of fish by bold women, the education of children by the hand of Imam of the mosque... A world in which the dangerous art of fishing exists thanks to the solidarity of those who share it.

Entry from: chinguetti, Mauritania Entry Title: "Mer de sable et bibliotheques" Entry: "Je suis venu pour la montgolfiere, mais finalement il fallait attendre 3 semaines donc j ai fait du dromadaira pour voir un phenomene accoustique. Les dunes qui chantent. Ce sont des dunes tres hautes et raides qui produisent un bruit quant on glisse dessus. Le dromadaire est des plus inconfortables avec sa selle en bois. Mais il a les pieds bien agiles pour se promener sur les arretes des dunes de sable. Ce qui est tres impressionnat en haut de son dromadaire. ...
The West African country is a haven for fishermen. Its waters are filled with a diverse abundance of fish, attracting migrant workers from neighbouring Senegal and Gambia. But it also attracts illegal fishing trawlers from even further. CCTV's Maria Galang spent an afternoon at Port de Peche in the capital, a workplace for many of Nouakchott's minority groups.
Mauritanian music is representative of two worlds, the devotional Islamic life of North Africa and the rhythmic energy of sub-Saharan Africa. Musicians in the country are finding ways of merging traditional music with contemporary sounds.
Mauritania contains one of the longest and and most dangerous train rides in the world. Used to transport iron ore from central Mauritania to the coast, the 437-mile journey is free for those who are willing to brave the hot desert winds and piercing iron dust. In this 360 immersive experience, Seeker Correspondent, Addison O'Dea travels across the Western Sahara in Mauritania.
