This portrait from Africa this summer is a young woman captured in Stone Town, the main city in Zanzibar.

Stone Town is a beautiful town with many historical buildings, and it was included in UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 2000. And like many other places on Africa’s east coast the town and Zanzibar strongly influenced by Arabic and Muslim culture.

More about Stone Town and Zanzibar in coming posts.

    Et meget uttrykksfullt bilde på mange måter – kulturforskjellen kommer svært godt frem. Men portrett når man nesten ikke ser noe av ansiktet … 🙂
