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.
