Photographer's Note

A street seller displaying hand-written holy words in Arabic in his booth. He is so focused in what he reads that I got the impression that he's not really interested in selling but reading!
The writings on the wooden walls are framed and hung like ordinary pictures.
This type of art, called "Hat" (pronounced as "hut" not hat!) is special to Muslims and there are very famous artists whose work are sold at very high prices. Unfortunately the number of these artists decrease day by day as youngsters are not interested in it very much.
