One of the things that these photographs have in common is that they were all taken without the subjects' knowledge. I would never have thought to ask a woman in Morocco if I could take her picture. Perhaps it's because they're almost all covered up from head to toe as if to say, "Don't look at me." I even felt hesitant taking these photographs from a safe distance but was drawn to do so anyhow. The only chance I had to talk to a woman was in Fes where we had a female guide.
