Hand-woven Carpet - Polaroid Lift

While in Morocco this summer, I visited both Marrakesh and Fes and shot a few slides with the intent to produce Polaroid lifts and transfers. The Polaroid lift above is a detail shot of a hand-woven berber carpet taken in the Marrakesh "medina" or old part of town, which is fascinating even for a Moroccan native. It's a city within a city where neighborhoods are organized by trade, streets are very narrow, too narrow for car access and everything in and out is transported on donkeys. A great place to visit if you ever get the chance.
