A Sample of of Bushmen (Khoisan) Photographs from the Archives of Mike Elliott

This has been a rush job so the slides have been scanned quickly and there has not been time to clean up the images. They represent a small part of my collection of more than 15 000 slides of the Bushmen, Bakhalahardi, African wildldlife and the landscapes of Namibia, Botswana & South Africa. It is my intention in the near future to scan all of them properly and present them in a searchable manner on these web pages.
