On the second journey I carried a couple of sketch books around. The trip had been sponsored by the Bruno Schulz Institute, that supports artists to whom art is an attempt to create knowledge, rather than a way of creating beauty. (The one of course not necessarily excluding the other.) Drawing what I saw around me became a daily routine.
The drawings were exhibited, alongside the photos, at the Institue of Social Studies in The Hague, in a duo-exhibition together with Sabine Vess who showed drawings and paintings from her journeys through several African countries. (Images of Africa, 1999.)
