In Photos: “Signares” by Fabrice Monteiro.

Exploring history and fashion along the west coast of Africa, for his series ‘Signares' Belgian-Beninese photographer Fabrice Monteiro recalls a time in history where distinct cultures collided.

As European traders and explorers began to ascend on Africa’s west coast around the 15th and 16th century, as these men where forbidden from bringing their families and wives from their home countries, they began to intermingle and intermarry with African women in the Senegambia region. As a result of these relations, many of these women began to orchestrate business dealings to their benefits “using these partnerships to bolster their socioeconomic standing and personal trading enterprises”. One signare in the 1770s from St Louis, Senegal, is noted to have been a property owner and dealer as she bought and sold property in Saint-Domingue, while “five other signares in Gorée signed a petition against a poorly run French company that had been awarded an exclusive contract with the island”. 

Although these relations were not at first recognized by colonial and European authorities, it later became acceptable for Europeans living in Senegal to marry and have their descendants profit from these unions through heritage rights. Most of these women were considered to be of a high class and often married “middle-class executives or French and English aristocrats”. Naturally, a new sense of fashion was born as the women combined their own traditional styles with European attire at the time.

This moth has her winter coat on already and she is looking fabulouuuuuuuuus! 

No this is not okay please kill every one of these

You all better hold my earrings right now. How could you kill something so small that contributes so much to our environment? They’re harmless, tiny creatures just making their way through life and sometimes get caught up in our human world on their journeys. With moths, we are able to see various changes in food supply and crops, weather, and changes in the amounts of recent pesticides being put into our towns as well. 

Do not hurt moths. Moths are beautiful. They are the fairies of our natural world. Love the moths. Release the moths. 

^ TELL EM! Moths are beautiful creatures. :)

Plus they’re adorable!!
