Photographer's Note

In the North part of Togo and Benin there is a huge valley where the Tamberma people (in Togo) and the related Somba people (in Benin) live. Both people build big two storey buildings of clay called tata's.
There lives are practically unchanged since they started building these fortificated houses to protect themselves against the sklave trading kings of Abomey in the 17th century.
