Through my time in Egypt I photographed very few woman, out of respect for local custom. I photographed a few children, but I had yet to get a strong portrait of a woman until this trip - my second to Egypt - when this beautiful Nubian elder actually came up to us and asked if we would take her portrait.
I've posted earlier a colour version of this portrait but was going through some files this morning and came across this slightly different version, which I decided to give a black and white treatment.
Egypt. One of the world's jewels. Thank you to my Nubian "Princess" for letting me take this portrait of her.
