Mediterranean 1973

Granada, Spain 1973

In July 1973 I was with a dozen other college students in the southern French medieval town of  Aigues Mortes. On the farm at the site of the abandoned Benedictine Monastery of Saints Peter and Paul at Psalmod  we helped with the archaeological excavation and lived in tents under the apricot trees. At the end of July I set off hitchhiking to Granada, Spain up through Madrid and over to Marseille from where I took a ship across the Meditarranean Sea to Tunis. From Tunis a combination of trains, boats, and hitchhiking took me  through Sousse, Sfax, Kairouan, Djerba, and  El Djem.  

The photographs were made with a 50mm lens on a Miranda Sensorex.  I was a fan of Henri Cartier Bresson and Robert Frank and had a youthful curiosity as I walked the streets of  new places  in 1973.
