Jemen. Altarabische Traume im Weihrauchland

Yemen-the Romans called it "Arabia Felix”, the happy Arabia-was a leading centre for trade in ancient times. All spicery, incense, myrrh, gold, jewellery, ivory or porcelain, came from Yemen or had been transported on the legendary caravan roads of the incense route through the country. Because of its isolation for centuries, Yemen has kept most of its original charm to this day; there are still the most bazaars of the Orient in Sana’a and still standing in Hadhramat, are the world’s most unique skyscrapers, made out of clay in the middle of the desert.

The master photographers, Helfried and Renate Weyer, have captured these ancient Arabic dreams with their panoramic and large format cameras in such a way that every beholder of these magical pictures will want to set off straight away to experience the fabulous Yemen for themselves. Furthermore, the globetrotters of Buxtehude report in this beautiful book of the immense hospitality of the people in this culture, who had to experience, like us, the destiny of being separated for many years and who are now also, finally, happily unified.
