Promo Video for Legacy by Matthieu Cheminee

For the last year I've been working closely with Brynmorgen Press. One thing I do is edit together promotional videos. This one presents a new book about Jewelry traditions in West Africa called Legacy. The editing was a pleasure thanks to the amazing footage and photos taken by the author Mathieu Cheminée.

With little more than an anvil and a small box of tools, successive generations of jewelers in West Africa have developed a style of working in silver and gold admired the world over. While many books have been published documenting jewelry artifacts of Africa, few have documented the makers, their process and their traditions -- until now.
