nice job steve -- both the color and the black and white serve your
subjects well. i'm reminded of william betsch's book "the hakima, a
tragedy in fez: love and death in fez" -- a convoluted picture / story
book about a photographer who, while photographing in fez, comes across
the story of a girl who may have been murdered by her mother (some
witnesses say the girl was pushed) or may have comitted suicide (her
mother says she jumped) all over the fact that she may (or may not) have
been seen talking out the window to a man who was not her fiancee -- this
tale gets back to her intended husband who decides she's used goods if
she's been talking to men out her window and refuses to go through with
the wedding .... the photographer becomes obsessed with this story, which
wraps around some remarkable pictures of a remarkable place. including a
fantastic series of a sheep having it's throat cut shot from a balcony
above..... if you run across it, you should pick it up.
