In Dakar, five minutes of rain suffice to flood the suburbs of Pikine, Rufisque and Guédiawaye, which sprouted anarchically on former swamp land. In 2010, the rainfall reached the highest levels in thirty years. The goal of my photo-story is to show the everyday lives of people who survive in stagnant water for six months of the year. It is a reminder of the need for urban planning in the face of climate change.
