Photographer's Note

Ouagadougou, the hand-crafted village.

The village was opened in 2000 at the south-east of the city, beyond the airport.
It was set next to the SIAO site (international hand-crafted exhibition of Ouagadougou) that takes place each even year.

The village group together about 400 artisans and 25 crafts : bronze work, leather industry, basket-making, jewelry, painters... and of course textile industry.

The artisans set here have a workshop to show their know-how to the visitors and a shop to sell their products directly.

Most of the visitors are westerners travelers that prefer the convenient side of such a site to the markets of the centre of town.
