The Scarf of The Midianite is really just a portrait inspired by movies I have seen trying to depict the beautiful women of Israel. After spending some time looking around shops for the perfect scarf for the shoot, Jokha(model) and I found a very good looking scarf at Mr. Price(Mlimani City Mall) for about TSH15,000.
I picked up the scarf only to realise it was a little smaller than I wanted it to be, so I took two of the same and asked Jokha to give it to her mother so she would stitch them together and thereafter we were ready to shoot. I did not want to go heavy on the makeup, rather just a little eye-liner and a gentle powdering on the skin and then we brought my imagination to life.
Price for something similar: TSH 250,000 for 3 Pictures (Retouched).
