We were a team of 8 artists. Photographers, illustrators, musicians, writers and directors. We moved to Togo, in west Africa, to see the glory and beauty that God created. We expected to see pain and brokenness, poverty and extreme hunger. We expected to see sadness, but we didn't expect to see so much joy, love or life.
We wanted to give back to Togo, because the people- in their spirit of generosity, gave us much more perspective than we could even imagine. We want you to know that even though their is much brokenness in Africa, there is incredible beauty, simplicity and joy. We love Togo, we love the people and the land, and we want you to fall in love with the Togo we were blessed to see.
C'est la vie. C'est Togo.
