Djenne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Mali, is famous for its spectacular architecture. The city owes its unique character to its masons, inheritors of a craft tradition handed down from one generation of the Boso people to the next since the city arose in the 14th century. Discover—through archival and contemporary photographs and early engravings—how the masons continue their age-old craft and meet the challenges of a modern world.
