Leatherwork is a hobby I acquired during my travels through the Muslim world. I had gone through several iterations with camera bags and was never satisfied until I made one out of leather. I learned the craft slowly over a course of many months, by trial and error and also by watching local artisans in Morocco, Mauritania, Mali and Niger. My leather camera bag underwent many additional iterations until I was happy with the results. When I returned to the US, my journey was over but my passion for leather remained. I used the skills I learned and applied it to new projects.
