Images of workers tell a story

Creating a meaningful portrait of working conditions within a cluttered and busy production environment can be a challenge.

There is always lots of clutter, individuals and groups you will not want within the image and plenty of distractions. The tannery in Marrakech was all of these.

Sometimes you just have to bide your time and wait for the right opportunity when one of the individuals is busily engaged in part of the process which can tell the whole story in one capture. Dramatic lighting can help as does bold colours. In this shot the lighting was great with lots of props to help tell the story of a busy yet primitive tannery.
