Photographer's Note

From Ghardaïa, the major city of the M'Zab valley in the Algerian desert. This valley, about 500 km south of Algiers, is home to a puritan Islamic sect and the architecture of the several small towns is characterized by a strictness and simplicity that sometimes achieves great beauty.
This picture from September 1975 was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
