LYNN DAVIS, Modern Views of Ancient Treasures
Lynn Davis (Minneapolis 1944), lives and works in New York.
During my travels in the Middle East (1989-2010) at one point I read “The Journey of Ibn Battuta” (“The Journey of Ibn Battuta”) by the great Egyptian writer Naguib Mafouz. I thought it was a fantasy story. It was, but it was based on the real Ibn Battuta, a Muslim scholar and explorer. In my research on his life and his explorations I did not intend to repeat his journey of twenty-nine years, but life wanted me to follow in his footsteps vaguely.
