Description of the photograph

Niger. Gerewol, General Assembly of the Wadabee Peuls of West Africa. Peul Bororo. Each year during the rainy season, the Peul Bororo meet after a year of transhumance to celebrate the Gerewol. Deeply animist, the life of the Bororo is dictated by beauty. This cult reaches its apotheosis during this original festival where only men compete. After hours of preparation, they show up online, wearing makeup, adorned with jewelry and their finery. They sing and dance slowly like this, then offer the women their tight smiles and wide eyes to highlight the aesthetic of their face. The young Bororo girls then mingle with the dancers and choose the most beautiful. // Niger. A Wodaabe-Bororo man with his face painted for the annual Gerewol male beauty contest. Gerewol, general reunion of West Africa for the Wadabee Peuls (Bororo peul). Every year the Peuls are meeting after one year of transhumance to celebrate the Gerewol.
