Photographer's Note

Khartoum is filled with a mixture of architecture. Much of the modern architecture is uninspiring but on streets in the older parts of town one can find examples of structures built by the Ango-Egyptian Condiminium that governed Sudan before independance. Much of it is in poor condition, whether occupied or unoccuppied like this building. Unfortunately as money comes into the country many of these buildings are being pulled down to be replaced by dreadful western designs. One of my favourite buildings, an old colonial office with quirky corners and art deco flourishes has been pulled down while I was away to be replaced by a much less attractive, functional facade.

Right now Sudan is very hot!

PS For some odd reason I got in a whole heap of trouble for taking this photo - but the textures make it worthwhile.
