Photographer's Note

A wonderful visit to Mali. The Dogon live in an arid part of the country, on the plateau or on the cliff side. They have a facinating culture, whith the Masked dances being part of rituals, in which only some men are initiated. The have a secret language and the elders theach the younger men how to dance the specific dance of their "Mask".
