Senufo in Mali



Photographs by Renée Colin-Noguès

in Senoufo land, Mali, in 1952-1954


Last photographic testimony about the Senufo, the people of Sikasso in Mali, before the Independence and the great upheavals in urban Africa. Enlightened and exceptional glance of the governor woman which will become recognized researcher.


Renee Colin-Nogues spent two years at the heart of the Senufo country in Sikasso and in the Kènèdougou region “Land of Light”. This land had strong cultural attachment to its rites and society : colonisation had wounded it but fundamentally caused little upheaval.
