Textures of Morocco

Morocco is so vast and with such a distinct culture, I have been struggling with the right way to represent it. The Islamic prohibition on pictures of the body massively influences my options as generally people prefer not to have their picture taken I even experienced difficulty in photographing mannequins
I thought I would begin with some textures that reflect the enormous richness of geography and history of the country

every where you go there are cats but few dogs who are thought of as unclean by Muslims

Here are some of my favorite moggies
 finally here are a few mannequin pics part of my long running fascination with  these projections of our desires

the child image is from Qatar
