Photographer's Note

In Senegal, close to the Mali border, Bassari people lived on the top of hills for years, hidden from christianism submission. The only purpose was to preserve their ancestral animism practices. Nowadays, the bassaries are recognised by the government and they slowly start relationship with other cultures. This mother and child captured my atention. The eyes of the child show surprise and talked to me in silence.
