Cityscapes: Swahili Coast

February 10, 2017


For this edition of Cityscapes, I've compiled a selection of photographs that I took in East Africa in the 1990s.  (Click on the image above to see the images on Flickr).  We spent close to a year total during two visits: in 1995, Ashley had a U.S. Fulbright to undertake a large research project on women's groups, and in 1998 she had a National Science Foundation grant to conduct follow up research for her Masters thesis.  During that time, I learned everything I could about Swahili architecture, urbanism, and landscapes.  For me, it was the start of a long-term love of the East African coast, its rich cultural heritage, and its extraordinary built environments.
