Photographer's Note

La ville de Stonetown, où il fait bon errer à la découverte d'une architecture très riche, est classée au Patrimoine mondial par l'Unesco. Ses fameuses portes en bois regorgent de détails sculptés qui, à l'origine, donnaient des informations sur les habitants de la maison (profession, religion, statut).

Zanzibar's Stone Town is rightly famous for its old wooden doors. They are intricately carved from heavy wood, and most of the decorations with brass or iron accents have some form of religious or cultural significance and follow either the Indian or Arabic tradition.
