About Eight Days in Yemen
In 1976, Peter Schlesinger visited the Yemen Arab Republic - as the northern part of Yemen was then called. He was accompanying the photographer Eric Boman who was on a fashion shoot assignment for a French magazine. Yemen had been closed to foreigners for many years and in the interest of encouraging more tourism the government decided to court media outlets into coming to Yemen.
During the eight days he was there Schlesinger took hundreds of photographs documenting what he saw as he travelled from the capital Sanaa and on through the northern city of Sa’da where the Houthis are now fighting.
