Photographed over several journeys to the legendary city of Timbuktu, situated just 12 kilometres north of the most northerly bend of the River Niger. These images are excerpts from a book titled "The Lost Treasures of Timbuktu", published by Thames & Hudson and supported by The University of Oslo, Norway. The book documents the people, their manuscript tradition and the place itself. Based on the writing and research of my father Prof. John Hunwick.
