The Singer

Here is a singer from Algeria taken at the beginning of the 20th century. She’s holding a Derbouka – a kind of drum. I enlarged part of the image so that you can see how clear the details are, even the transparency of part of her skirt. If you click on the images you can see them better.

AladysLife: Perhaps you could get coloured ones. With a magnifying glass you can make our the outline of her foot, perhaps it's muslin

Sy: I like this a lot

DB: I think that the photographers were more like traditional artists then

Mark: That's very kind of you
