DESCRIPTION

Jim Barry lived in Senegal for five years and returns frequently to West Africa.  Laughing with his photo subjects has become a habit as he travels.  Many schools and colleges in Mali use his expertise for their webs and now have and their outpost on the Internet.  These photos are taken in remote areas of Mali, Burkina Faso, and most recently in Tunisia.  The silk paintings come from travel sketches.  The "Jasmine Revolution" in Tunisia was a close parallel to one in Mali fifteen years ago and inspired a peaceful two month trip this summer to talk to people about their newly found freedoms and hopes for the future.  Please see jimbarry.org for contact information.
