A Defining Moment
Actress Lupita Nyong’o graces the pages of DuJour Magazine’s latest issue. In her interview, the 30-year old star opens up about all the critical acclaim the movie 12 Years a Slave is getting, saying, “I’m really fulfilled right now by the traction this film is getting. It was made to be seen, and that’s what’s happening—America is engaging with it and being moved and changed by it. It’s really rewarding to be a part of that. That’s more important to me than any award.”

FABRICE MONTEIRO: LA VOIE DU BAYE FALL
This body of work looks at faith, attire, rituals and trances through portraits and scenes from daily life. A way of life, the Baye Fall are Muslim Sufi of the Wolof world. Monteiro captures moments that punctuate the lives of these men and women, the Yaye Fall. These include ‘The Great Magal of Touba’, a pilgrimage commemorating founder Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba exile in Gabon, and gives rise to a huge collective prayer on the beaches of Touba, and another occasion ’The Gamou’ that celebrates the birth of the prophet. In these photographs one can discover the principles governing the life of the Baye Fall community: their duty of offering as it relates to the practice of “Madial” and especially “jebellou” which is total submission to the marabout.
