Photographer's Note

A glimpse of daily life in Ghardaïa in the Algerian desert, September 1975.
Ghardaïa is the main town in the M'Zab valley, an area populated by members of a conservative, puritan islamic sect. I found it slightly difficult to take pictures of people but managed a few shots in the busy market area, where most people were too busy to bother.
This was scanned from a Kodachrome slide.
