"When I was travelling in Morocco, I mentioned to a friend that I love the book “The Sheltering Sky” by Paul Bowles. In it he talks about who is a traveler and who is a tourist. I have traveled often, so I love that concept. My friend reminded me that The Sheltering Sky was set in Morocco, so the book and much of the beautiful literary phrasing of Paul Bowles was in my mind when I took the photos and later created the artworks".
