Daouda Corera is a Mauritanian photographer from Sabkha, a suburb of the nation’s capital city Nouakchott. In December 2015, a car accident led to the loss of his equipment. It was, at least in retrospect, a fortuitous loss that set him on a path toward making the images he is perhaps best known for now, taken with an iPhone. He’s committed to showing the world the beauty of life in Mauritania, which is one of the least visited countries on earth.
“My work aims to help people understand and know and see Mauritania differently.”
