Makeda Mixed Couples – Photo Stories by Aurore Vinot

Jun 23, 2014 • Algeria, Art, Articles, Congo, South AfricaNo Comments

In most cultures the idea of ‘intercultural’ relationships are still taboo. French photographer Aurore Vinot’s Makeda Mixed Couples is a photographic project that chronicles the lives of ‘intercultural’ couples living in Bravaville, Cape Town, Algiers, Paris and Beirut.
 
Vinot especially wanted to explore couples in South Africa to see the situation of racial mixing post apartheid and also the issues faced between a couple of different religions in a multi faith country such as Algeria and Lebanon.
 
The project looks at diversity and the social and cultural implications that ‘mixed’ couple face living their day to day lives.
