title: A Desert Adventure
author and photography: Humphrey Spender
design and print: David Jury
In 1934, whilst on a commissioned photographic visit to Morocco, Humphrey Spender kept an intimate diary from which, on his return, he produced a censored version with the idea that it might be published in the future. The unreserved contents of these two texts are set side by side, together with previously unseen photographs. This book was produced to support an exhibition of Humphrey’s Morocco work at the Photographer’s Gallery, London, 2004.
