…I see the seed of another religious project here. Not sure the direction of it yet, but having never been in a Muslim-majority country, I seem to have fallen in love with the visual and ultra-colourful element of the Moroccan women here in the ancient city of Fez in the almost three days I was visiting. Although my real reason to this whole trip is to find the minority of Jews in this country, one cannot stop, but to photograph every corner of every street of every neighborhood one find a woman dressed in color. It is a very clique’ thing, I know, but I still felt like doing it to have my part into the scheme of things. There is some inexplicable magnetism that attracts me to want to know everything there is to discover about the women behind these layered veils even if there is no chances for them to unravel them. But maybe the desire is enough for me to give me hope and energy to continue photographing them. We will see where I will go from here. Onward and upward.
