Fragrant Oils, by Nilla Palmer

Meandering down the passageways of Chefchaouen in the subdued dusk, the fragrant scent of oils captured my attention until stumbling upon its source; a tiny shop, laden with sacks of spices and jars of colourful oils. Using the doorway instead of a tripod for this photo, I captured a row of fluorescent backlit jars standing silently, which provided a luminous warm glow for the shop’s interior walls.

Nilla Palmer’s natural desire to travel and photograph many parts of the world started 27 years ago. Although her photography addiction first started with a 110mm film camera, then progressing to 35mm cameras, a photography course, which included B&W darkroom techniques, and recently digital cameras. Nilla captures whatever strikes her at a precise moment but strives for images that will etch in people’s minds. Nilla’s intent is to reveal a story through her images for an audience, which she hopes inspires and encourages people to visit far off lands.
