Photographer's Note

Returning from the market in Djenne, these women walk for long hours early in the morning to come to Djenne to sell their vegetables and fruits, and walk back long hours to return to their villages, always carrying those baskets on their heads! We can be admirative of their hard life. Mali gave me an experience of what life really boils down to : get water, cultivate the fields to have something to eat for the day, try to sell products they cropped, go out for wood to prepare the fire to boil the pot, and live with the sun... and this unrelentlessly every day of the year and every year of their life... A lesson for us, often spoiled kids of the so called first world... something to meditate on;-)
