Henna 2: The Return

I received a few emails requesting for more pictures of the henna painter. And as I have been stuck all week with admin stuff… I don’t have any new pictures to show. So:

23 September 2010: Fatima Bahit (also know as Tata) is one of the most famous henna specialists in El Fasher, North Darfur, Sudan. Self-taught and with more than 15 years experience, she frequently goes to Khartoum or even to Dubai to provide her services to women for weddings or Eid celebrations.

Just a quick reminder. WordPress compresses my pictures to create a thumbnail, leading sometimes to an impression of blurred picture. If you want to see the original version, just click on the picture.


  1. Great photos – ahhh the hours of having henna applied – drinking tea and gossiping with the women on a sweltering Saturday morning in Fasher… Hope all is well with you…
