Child of the North of Mali
A true child of the North of Mali. Seen in Tichlatt, a Moor village in the Cercle de Nara.
Photography is my all absorbing passion since childhood. There is great beauty in documenting life for later. Mali and Nara belong to the few places on this earth were I often forgot to take pictures because life was so fascinating and intense.
So I just lived, dreamed and did not think about later. Like that I did not miss out on great moments.
Mali has to be thanked.

The donkey cart was the only means of transport for many in the 1990’s. And although Nara is electrified and there are more cars today it probably still is for many. It took a slow and long ride, like for these two young men, to travel from the villages to Nara and back. They are sitting on top of a pile of fresh green leaves that have been collected around their village.
