End of Marrakech I_marrakech27Landscape8with8Palm8Tree8and8Clouds8Marrakech
From the Marrakech I collection
Most of these images were made in Marrakech, near there, or on trips nearby. Marrakech is a paradox. In many places you are shooting things that are exotic, but there you are shooting things from another time completely. The bad news is that nobody wants to be photographed.
I have no doubt that there are great pictures to be made in Casablanca or Rabat, or any other places in Morocco. However if I ever get a chance to go back I’m heading for Marrakech again.
Despite the fact that it is one of the most difficult places to shoot, the experience of walking, not just in an exotic location but in a totally different time, is irresistible.
Only with children will you experience acceptance. Adults in Morocco really don’t wish to be photographed. (Have there have been too many tourists there?)
Stepping into a place that looks as if you had entered another time in history is kaleidoscopic, intimidating, exciting, and inspiring.
