Unphotographable: A text account of pictures missed

“In October 2004, I travelled to Ethiopia for a two-week solo sightseeing trip. I’d been advised against bringing my camera, but as an amateur street photographer, leaving it behind didn’t seem like an option. In predominantly Muslim communities, photography is shunned, particularly photographing women, which is completely understandable. Consequently, at many times during my trip, there was so much to see, and no way to capture it, except through words. Hence this site — a place for all the moments I was unable to photograph. If you’re a photographer and find yourself unable to pick-up the camera to shoot a certain situation, I’d be interested in hearing your story and possibly including it on the site.” (Thanks kottke.org!)
