Fajr, by Lois Patiño

.

In the Moroccan desert, night dilutes forms and silence slides through sand. Dawn starts to draw silhouettes of dunes while motionless figures punctuate landscape. From night´s abstraction, light returns its dimension to space and their volume to bodies. Stillness concentrates gaze and duration densifies it. The adhan –call to pray– sounds and immobility, that was condensing, begins to irradiate. And now the bodies dissolve into the desert.
