Photos: Namsa Leuba's 'Ya Kala Ben'


Ya Kala Ben is the newest series by photographer Namsa Leuba. Raised by a Helevetian father and Guinean mother, Namsa was exposed to two different cultures from a young age. Her photography work focuses on an African's identity through the Western lens. For her most recent series, recently featured on Another Africa, she researched the cultural practices and rituals from the region of Conakry, Guinea in West Africa. The photographs prove to be aesthetically pleasing whilst maintaining the richness of culture for the viewer to appreciate.
