New exhibition: Scenes of Dogon life, photos by Wouter van Beek
The Dogon of Mali form one of the visual highlights of West Africa. With the spectacular setting of their villages against the Bandiagara cliff, their iconic mask performances and their ethnographic fame, they form a core attraction in West African culture tourism. But also Dogon daily life is well worth capturing on camera, as is shown in this photo exhibition by Wouter van Beek, the anthropologist who has worked in the Dogon area since 1979. Here the brilliance of Dogon ritual performances is complemented by the visual appeal of their everyday village life.
