Moroccan Tanneries of Fes

A rescue photo that needed some outside work. I took this photo while traveling through Fes Morocco. The image was taken in low light resulting in too much grain and no contrast. These Moroccan tanners had no fear of standing in lye water while hand scraping the hair from the hides. I chose these colors to illustrate the horrid smell of organic decay. The end products are hand crafted beautiful leather hand bags and wallets.
