Audrey King Lewis: Dogon of Mali-West Africa Exhibition

Audrey King Lewis shares her photographs and artifacts from Mali in West Africa, home of the Dogon people.

Photographers Statement

My three-day journey to Dogon Country in the central plateau region of the country of Mali in the West Africa region was in hopes of locating the Origin of my paranormal experiences.

The Dogon people are traced back over 5,000 years to the ancient Mediterranean cultures of Sumer and Egypt. These ancient civilizations possessed not only great wealth and learning, but also a knowledge dependent on physics and astrophysics, which they claimed was imported to them by visitors from the star Sirius.

The subject of extraterrestrial contacts were speculated by many, but never before has such a detailed theory been formulated from  generations of Dogon ancestry in Mali West Africa, according to Robert Temple, A Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society.

I feel that I have successfully captured the beauty of the Dogon People from the Bandiagara Cliffs of Mali as well as the environment in which they live.
