Through a correspondence ad in Jeune Afrique magazine, Ilse Cardoen connected with Elhadji Sall. They started writing each other letters. In the summer of 1986 Ilse visited Elhadji and his family in Quartier Kebe Der in Guediaway Dakar, Senegal.

Ilse and her son Kwabena asked Mirelle van Tulder to create a book from Ilse’s personal archive. Delighted to work with this beautiful archive, Mirelle chose to use the semi-analog Riso printing technique to recapture the vivid memories present in the photographs. It was saddening to find out that Elhadji Sall passed away in July 2022. This book is a tribute to him and everyone who gave Ilse Cardoen the ‘Teranga’ of Senegal.
