Portraits of the new president of the Republic of The Gambia – His Excellency Adama Barrow © Jason Florio


We were highly honoured to have a private audience with the then President-Elect, Mr. Barrow, a few weeks ago. And, even more so when he readily agreed to let Jason Florio make his portrait, in the gardens of the Kairaba Hotel, Senegambia.
