Photographer's Note

From a market-place in Mopti, Mali, in 1982.

Mopti is a major trading-place and port at the confluence of the Niger and Bani rivers. Strictly geographically it is situated in the southern part of the country, culturally and demographically I would rather locate it in central Mali, at the frontier between "black" Mali and the mainly Tuareg north. During the recent fighting in the country Mopti was the northernmost major city held by the government.

I have scanned this old photo from a Kodachrome slide. As far as I remember I used a Canon FTb camera. Here is a larger version.
