Photographer's Note

A short drive out of Marrakech and into the High Atlas Mountains brings you to a town called Asni. The Berber people hold a temporary market once a week where they bring their wares to sell. The day we were there it was early December and very cold. It had been raining heavily and the streets of the market were under two or three inches of mud. Along the back of the market runs an alleyway made up of small huts which sell meals cooked in the typical terracotta tangines and the tea houses serve piping hot and heavily sweetened mint tea. This berber gentleman was enjoying a quite cigarette in the back of one such tea house, sipping his tea as the light poured in through the open wooden shuttered window.
