Photographer's Note

All seek the shade, in the deep south of Morocco, the temperature exceeds 40 degrees .... much impossible to work.
Tiznit or Tiznet (Arabic: تزنيت‎,) is a town in the southern Moroccan economic region of Sous-Massa-Draa, founded in 1881 by the sultan Hassan I. It has a population of approximately 50,000. Tiznit is well-known for its silver jewelry, daggers and sabres.
Located near the coast, Sultan Moulay Hassan settled in the area in 1881 to exert his control over dissident Berber tribes of the Souss. In 1912, Ahmed al-Hiba (El Hib), a populist rebel overthrew the French government and proclaimed himself sultan of Tiznit in the town's mosque. He conquered the Sous by uniting the tribes of the Anti Atlas Mountains and the Tuareg. He went on to attack Marrakech but was suppressed by the French.
