Behind the scenes
The picture offers a unique look at workers' lodges in one of the most luxurious hotels located in Isalo National Park in Madagascar. The clothing line depicts the different meanings that this beautiful rocky area has for various people. While numerous tourists pass by for a short stay and a few snaps, the location constitutes the everyday life of the many Malagasys who have migrated there for a living. Madagascar is one of the poorest countries in the world.
