The exhibition „Chronique d’une révolte – photographies d’une saison de protestations“ (“Chronicle of a revolt – photographs from a season of protestations”) was shown in the cultural center “Biscuiterie de Medina” (“Biscuit Factory”), an amazing ancient factory building in Dakar.

The exhibition, curated by the RAW Material Company, shows pictures of the „Senegalese spring“. 20 press photographers followed the appeal of the Raw Material Company to participate in this project and placed at the disposal pictures of the demonstrations preceding the Presidential elections in Senegal in February 2012.
