I’m actually praying for a blizzard so I can sit for hours, guilt free, and look at this book. This is easily one of the most inspiring books I’ve bought in years and it reminds me of the power of a simple, straightforward image.

    I’ve been holding National Geographic magazines between my hands since I was a little girl, I learned a lot with them and have carried me to remote places and countries hrough its wonderful photographies. I need to buy this book! Thanks for sharing it!

    Le quartier des tanneurs et des teinturiers a Marrakech. I was there a long time ago. I was overwhelmed by the colours, textures and…the smell !
    Morocco is an extraordinary experience, all the senses are on alert.

    There is a current exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography here in Los Angeles that features images from the 125 years of National Geographic. It’s a terrific little museum that is devoted only to photography. And, as always, it’s free and parking is free.

        That’s what I usually do … yesterday it wasn’t happening, but today it is! :) LOVE the shot of the woman with the deer and that crazy shot of people dyeing fabric red (at least, I hope that’s what’s going on….)

        Thank you for your reply!

    I agree! Sometimes it is hard to find a quiet moment just to read or enjoy this kind of books!

    I saw the exibition. The Afgan Market photo is beautiful. We think of Afganistan as a poor backward country, but these merchants are well off: there is a teenage boy waring a watch! Who could afford giving one to such a young boy, in the 1920es?
