Day one in Senegal was fully charged in the best of ways. First in-person meeting with our NGO partners from Open Society Initiative West Africa followed by a classic Elia Saikaly ‘chasing light’ shoot with our lovely talent, artist, bass player, climber and humanitarian @ladymaahkeita. I’m in Senegal to tell Maah’s story as part of the @climbforalbinism initiative. Almost two years of work coming together with a culminating climb that begins October 1st.
