Photographer's Note

Agadez is a city in the desert with beautiful Sahel-style mud architecture that includes the Grande Mosquee with a pyramid-shape minaret. The old city (Vieux Quartier) has crooked streets and irregular shaped houses. Agadez is populated mostly with Tuaregs. It used to be an important caravan stop, but these days to a significant degree trucks replaced camels.
