Sam Phelps - Photography

Sam Phelps is a photojournalist currently living and working Senegal. When we saw his recent work, highlighting a fencing program for youth in Senegal, we knew immediately we had to share these on our blog. This is not just any  fencing program for youth though, this is specifically for children under 18 who have been incarcerated. With a large number of under 18s in Senegal's prison system, this program was launched as a way for these kids to interact with each other and hopefully gain some sense of normalcy and a chance at redemption. A beautiful black and white treatment and great composition make for a set of photographs that will stay with you long after you've seen them.
