Artist's Description

Illela, a rural town about 500 miles northwest of Niamey, sits at the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in The Republic of Niger. Proud and strong, Inna was the matriarch of the Tuareg family I came to know so well. She had blue eyes. I asked her how that came to be, as none of the other Tuaregs I had met had blue eyes. She smiled at me, and said it was a mystery.

I often wondered if she had come from somewhere else, some place north of Niger. I always wanted to know her story, but I could only guess. She would say nothing.

Taken with a Topcon 35 mm using Tri-X film; negatives were scanned and converted to positive images.
