Photographer's Note

The Dahlak Archipelago is an island group located in the Red Sea near Massawa, Eritrea. It consists of two large and 124 small islands. The pearl fisheries of the archipelago have been famous since Roman times and still produce a substantial number of pearls. Only four of the islands are permanently inhabited, of which Dahlak Kebir is the largest and most populated.

L'ile de Dahlak se situe en Mer Rouge, au large de l'Erythree. Elle est rarement visitee. Desertique, elle est peu peuplee. Environ 5000 personnes se repartissent sur les plus grandes iles de l'archipel qui en compte 124. Elle a ete connue dans le passe pour la chasse aux perles et aux tortues de mer
