Description

Each year the harmattan wind blows sand from the Sahara Desert into the skies throughout West Africa. In the midst of such a wind, suddenly things are not what they were. For Marcello Di Cintio, the harmattan wind captures the essence of his ten-month journey through Ghana, Togo, Benin, Niger, Burkina Faso, Mali and Mauritania, a journey that is as much about what he discovers within himself as it is about the lands of people of West Africa.
