Tanneries [Marrakech]

Series taken in the Tanneries of Marrakech, in Morocco, it is also known by the name of "Tanneries". It is a work that has remained intact since medieval times and continues to be worked with the same methodology as before. Men who have this exhausting and slave job do not usually live too long due to continuous contact with acids, toxic dyes and animal droppings that They act as transforming agents of the leather, which reach us consumers, as beautiful bags, wallets, shoes and coats made of soft leather. These men are outcasts socially because this is considered a humiliating and undignified job. They, without a better option, leave their life to get daily support for their families... and also their dreams!
