Photographer's Note

"Djemaa el Fna" is a square and market place in Marrakesh's medina quarter, the old city.
The place is the main square of Marrakesh, used equally by locals and tourists.
During the day it is predominantly occupied by orange juice stalls, youths with chained apes, water sellers in colourful costumes with leather water-bags and brass cups, and snake charmers who will pose for photographs for tourists.
As the day progresses the entertainments on offer change: the snake charmers depart, and in the afternoon and evening the square becomes more crowded, with dancing-boys, story-tellers, magicians, and peddlers of traditional medicines.
As dark descends the square fills with dozens of food-stalls, and the crowds are at their height.
