Photographer's Note

Tiznit or Tiznet (Arabic: تزنيت‎, Amazigh: ⵜⵉⵣⵏⵉⵜ) is a town in the southern Moroccan economic region of Sous-Massa-Draa (#13), founded in 1881 by the sultan Hassan I. It has a population of approximately 50,000. Tiznit is well-known for its silver jewelry, daggers and sabres.

Located near the coast, Sultan Moulay Hassan settled in the area in 1881 to exert his control over dissident Berber tribes of the Souss. In 1912, Ahmed al-Hiba (El Hib), a populist rebel overthrew the French government and proclaimed himself sultan of Tiznit in the town's mosque.He conquered the Sous by uniting the tribes of the Anti Atlas Mountains and the Tuareg. He went on to attack Marrakech but was suppressed by the French.

LE MURA INFINITE
Tiznit è una città del Marocco, capoluogo della provincia omonima, nella regione di Souss-Massa-Draâ.
Molti penseranno ad uno scatto fatto a Marrakech,ma anche Tiznit è circondata da storiche e antiche mura.La città,situata nel profondo sud del Marocco,non viene generalmente inclusa nei tour organizzati ed è abbastanza difficile da raggiungere se non in taxi,comunque ne vale la pena.
