Skin funduq

While the tanning is not considered much of job by most Fassis, the people who bring in skins in to town, remove the hair and fur and bring it out to the tannners' quarter are still a step or two down on the ladder from the tanners.

Fez, Morocco

As you walk into their funduq where the skins are sorted, no happy face will look up at you. And just like subdued convicts none of them will stop you from photographing. But still you get a clear feeling that your photo angles should be made so that no face is revealed: even people who don't object openly deserve to have their privacy protected.
