Dances of Africa, Michel Huet photos, texts Claude Savary, oak Editions  I managed to get a few copies of the book, almost exhausted, Michel Huet, a book which is one of the few books in which you can see the masks situation: African masks come to us, usually stripped of their finery and we end up forgetting that they are the main element of the costume of the dancer who is always dressed from head to foot, and sometimes on stilts ...

Here, we forget the aesthetics of the mask, as we offer museums, never to see his ceremonial function ...


This is an essential book for lovers of African art!  From 1945 to 1985, from Senegal to the Congo Basin, the dunes of the Sahel to the Gulf of Benin, through the thorny scrub forest or stuffy, Michel Huet photoraphié African life, rescuing from oblivion many traditions and customs.Commenting on these exceptional documents, ethnologist Claude Savary relive these rites, too long considered folklore, and actually reveal the genius of these people, the wonderful soul of Africa.
