    and my dear friend what made you photograph those veiled girls their are many algerian women without veil,I insiste you have either a facination or a disdain for veiled women

    Dear Kenza,

    Neither a fascination nor disdain. But, why should veiled women not appear in photographs? Surely they are not invisible on the streets of Algiers.

    All best,

    Dear Kenza,

    There certainly are. In fact, one appears in the background of this photograph, by way of contrast. However, I might be criticised for cropping her head. Is such cropping misogynist?

      Dear Kenza,

      Thank you for your stimulating comments during my journey. They raised important issues. I look forward to continuing our though-provoking conversation.

      All best wishes,
