Photographer's Note

Listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2006, the walled town of Harar reached its heyday in the 16th century as a centre for trade and artistic pursuits.

Richard Burton (the explorer not the actor!) claimed to be the first European to enter the town in 1854. The town also became home to Arthur Rimbaud in 1875-1884.
