Photographer #133: Yann Gross

Yann Gross, 1981, Switzerland, went to Uganda in 2008 and 2009 to document the only Skatepark in East Africa. The skatepark was build by the youngsters themselves from Kitintale, a suburb of Kampala, without support from the government or NGO's. The series Kitintale is released as a book. Earlier he released the book Horizonville. He went on a motorcycle through the Rhône valley in Switzerland to find a community that wants to live and look like citizens of the USA. Although most of them have never been there, "they feel a sense of belonging to another culture that they don't really know." The following images come from the series Kitintale, Horizonville and Agreste.
