Morning Sun at Chaouwara Tannery
22" x 30"
One of the most iconic sights (and smells) of Fez, the Chaouwara Tannery offers the dying of leather products naturally using a method that have changed little since medieval times. The pits contain different coloured dyes and a worker works in one of the pot holes dying the leather products that will be sold at the tannery itself.
This unique method and setting give visitors a window into the world of dyeing leather and allow visitors to have a unique visual experience. The morning sun forms interesting shadows that can be seen against the brown backdrop.
