Ubuntu is a word of African origin that means “I am because we are”. Solidarity, humanity, trust and support for each other. This is precisely what has been in the lens of photographer André François for over a decade, capturing scenes of people in the health universe in Brazil and worldwide.
With a focus on sensitizing people about the importance of health, education, health promotion and quality of life through caring and connecting people, André François decided to create the Ubuntu photo documentary. André immersed himself in the theme since 2008, visiting more than 14 countries. From Amerindian communities, such as the Yanomami, in Roraima, Brazil, and the Inuits, in Nunavut, Canada, through Japan, China, Bolivia, Cambodia, the United States and Haiti, to South Africa, Lesotho, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi.
