Ethnographic and historical researcher and writer
Henrik Ellert was born in Denmark but grew up in Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, firmly instilling what has become a lifelong fascination in the many diverse landscapes, cultures, traditions and peoples of Africa. He was educated in Zimbabwe, Denmark and Portugal - and now divides his time between both Denmark and southern Africa. Henriks professional experience focuses mainly on private sector development in Africa and his work takes him to most southern and east African countries. With a particular affinity for Lusophone Africa, Henrik has lived and worked in Moçambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé.
His abiding interest in African art and ethnography has given rise to this and several other related books.
