Photographer's Note

The ‘girna’ is a sort of hut found in the Maltese countryside. The interior of these huts is inevitably dome­shaped, but the exterior takes on a variety of forms - circular, oval, square, rectangular. There are 'double' giren, and giren surround­ed by a buttressing wall. Others have a second storey built on top. Some are even incorporat­ed into rubble walls, though these are small and only suitable for sheltering one or two per­sons.
