Back to Bereba

David Pace spreads SCU to Burkina Faso.

When photographer David Pace traveled back to Burkina Faso this January, he took with him a copy of the Winter 2007 Santa Clara Magazine to give a copy to one man in particular: Mande Mahamadi, above, who appeared on the cover. “Having a copy of the magazine,” Pace reports, “was a great way to show the villagers in Bereba what I was doing there, and it made them all willing and eager to be photographed.” See Pace’s photo essay online in the SCM archives.
