The Gollnhofer Collection

In 1987, Otto Gollnhofer, an ethnologist, produced a single hand-crated book of his photographs of the Mitsogo Bwiti of Gabon as a gift to Howard Lotsof, President of NDA International, Inc., the company developing ibogaine as a medication to treat chemical dependence. The book and an accompanying poster were part of a presentation at Medica 87, an international medical trade show in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The poster and a video tape of the 1987, Paris Ibogaine Conference were on display at the United States Embassy booth during the trade show. The photographs depict the Mitsogo Bwiti ca 1970s.

The poster was given to Simon Vinkenoog, a Dutch poet and writer. Pages of the book are reproduced here to honor Dr. Gollnhofer and the Mitsogo Bwiti with whom he lived. The images, for the most part, are full page reproductions from the book including Gollnhofer's English and french descriptions that are at the bottom of each page. The introduction to the book was in both languages and the two pages are provided. The photographs take you into a Bwiti chapel. The context is sacred.
