Photographer's Note

In Morocco the donkey is an important animal for transporting goods and you will see them carrying just about everything, from collecting the rubish to transporting people, vegetables, gas bottles, pulling carts etc... and you will often encounter them loaded up in the narrow streets of the medina (old city) or just about anywhere else carrying their burden. One of the things they are used for to transport in Fes is the leather to the tanneries. They have just offloaded these bundles here to the tanneries ready for dying in the giant pits of colour.
Moroccan leather and particularly leather from Fes is said to be amongst the best in the world, and is still processed in the same way used for 100's of years.
