First Photo Book Award (City of Paris/Kodak-Pathe Foundation). From the dust jacket- "True-to-Life mystery, The Hakima: A Tragedy in Fez is a wholly unprecedented form of novelistic photojournalism. Investigating the apparent suicide of a Moroccan bride whose virginity is suspect, prize-winning photographer William Betsch interviews Hakima's intimates and captures on film her sensual and terrifying world."
