We visited Tunisia in December 2001, well away from the main holiday season. We had been once before some years earlier and were interested to see the country again. I (BH) took several films, mostly B&W but some colour. I used fairly fast (400ISO) films because of the grey skies that were expected. Some negatives were printed fairly soon but then the pictures were put aside. Only recently have I returned to what is a fairly mixed set of images in order to make some sort of sense of them. Most that I have chosen are architectural. With buildings covering some 2000 years of its history Tunisia offers plenty of interest in this area. I regret that the people of the country have not played a larger part in the collection but they are not excluded entirely.
