Ile de Gorée island

Jean-Dominique Burton

Faces express places, life scenes tell us about time passing, still lives and symbolic art works sound out the architectural, cultural and historical estate of a shore in search for itself between decline, resistance and hope.

Goree island has been chosen as a symbol as well as a place of remembrance. It is one of the historic sites where the destiny of thousands of Africans was played out over five centuries, victims of the slave trade.

It is a place of recognition and reconciliation for the African diaspora.

UNESCO classed Goree island as a world heritage site in 1978. The site has remaind intact and has been the object of many restaurations. Billions of people come and visit it each year.
