Artist of the Day- Joan Choumali(click on image to view individually)

The addition of stitching to these photographs is done so thoughtfully and inventively. 

Using her art as an outlet to channel her emotional response to a tragic terrorist attack near her home, the beautifully embroidered images on canvas of photographer Joana Choumali offered a sense of therapy to the situation she was dealing with.

Based in Ivory Coast, Choumali began the project – entitled Ca va aller, meaning “it’s going to be fine” – as a response to the 2016 terror attacks on beach resorts near Abidjan, where she is based.
