Covering Fes Festival of Sacred Music, 2013 -1

Director of the Opening Event

Covering the night shift along with the throng in the vast and booming Place Boujloud, learning on the run how to take photos in the full glare of smokey stage lighting, sorting and writing in dim late night coffee shops on deadline-beating all-nighters, lazy afternoons  in the delicious sound garden of the Batha Museum… a grand assignment indeed.

Here’s the first of three posts linking to my coverage  of the event
