About the Book
A photographic survey of daily life in Mali in the years before the 2012 uprising. A fascinating country with a bright future as a tourist destination, Mali has suffered extreme setbacks following the 2012 uprising and subsequent security and terrorism issues. This book portrays everyday life in a more stable environment.
One third of the financial proceeds received by the author will be donated to charities active in Mali.
This book is the first in a series covering countries before an unprecedented change in their circumstances.
