The road

wafrica_001_tk005

While working on a piece about Mauritania, a phantasmagorically weird Saharan country that rides the line between Arab North Africa and black southern Africa, I went back through some of my photos and put together a sort of “road suite“–a series of images shot from the window of our Land Cruiser. By way of description, I think “bleak” is a good word. I was too lazy to dig the negatives out, so I just scanned the test shots from printing. In this case, I think the extra grit suits the subject matter.
