Photographer's Note

J'tais dans un grand livre d'histoire.
Je regardais le couple qui s'chappait entre les pages.
Stone Town, c'tait le sultanat d'Oman.
C'tait l'odeur des pices.
C'tait la traite des esclaves.
Autant de chapitres.
Autant de faades et de murs dlabrs

Le livre tait humide et sentait le moisi.
mais il avait toujours le got de l'exotisme
et des ides romanesques.

****

I was in a large book of history.
I looked at the couple which escaped between the pages.
Stone Town, It was the sultanate of Oman.
It was the odor of spices.
It was the draft of the slaves.
As many chapters.
As many frontages and dilapidated walls

The book was wet and felt mildewed.
But it always had the taste of exoticism and of the romantic ideas.
