The Tannery

One of the most interesting sites in Fez is the Leather Souq and the oldest leather tannery in the world.

I was lucky enough to get to shoot right down in there and it was an unforgettable experience. I almost fell in, the guy in the red t-shirt saved me. The pits are really close together and the ground in between them is wet and unstable but it didn’t stop me from getting right into the middle.

Thankfully the Moroccan ‘gasmask’ really does the trick. We shoved a whole bunch of mint right up each nostril.
