More about David's work:

"David Pace has been teaching photography in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 20 years. As resident director of Santa Clara University’s study abroad program in West Africa, Pace spends up to ten weeks each year in the small country of Burkina Faso, where he has been photographing annually since 2007. During his visits to Bereba, a rural village without electricity or running water, David creates a portrait of village life through several individual photography projects. This exhibition presents a selection from the series Market Day, Friday Night and Sur La Route. The images depict activities and situations on a typical Friday in Bereba."
