I am delighted to have won the 'People' category of this year's National Geographic Traveller photography competition.
This image, ”Dirty Work, Dyeing Wool”, was taken in the depths of the Marrakesh souk - the wool dyeing area - in Morocco. We got talking to one of the owners of a fabric boutique and, after a while, he took us round the corner to show us this almost apocalyptic scene of a worker dyeing the wool - it was dirty, hot and a pungent smell pervaded the air. The dyer continued for a while, oblivious to our presence, but then turned round - and I took this photograph.
We ended up buying a couple of beautiful scarves, the very least we could do to recognise the work that went in to making them.
