Photographer's Note

This is a Berber woman from the southern region of Tunisia. She lives in houses dug into the ground. A central courtyard is dug about 6m deep and then the rooms are tunnelled out from the sides.Inside the rooms have domed roofs and are very cool and insulated from the heat of the desert. This lady has the traditional tattoo on her chin for married women.
This region became popular when they chose to film Star Wars here.
Scanned from print. I have converted a version to black and white in the workshop because I was unsure of which one looked better.
