Photo Story - Morocco: Colours and light
Updated: Oct 6, 2019
A photographic journey through the winding streets and chaotic markets of Morroco. From the Northern tip of Tangier to as far south as the UNESCO world heritage site of Ait Benhaddou, along the ancient caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakesh.
Undoubtedly the most memorable times spent in Morocco were those moments negotiating (in more ways than one) the chaotic markets, alleyways and shops that adorn morocco's towns and cities. Their hustle and bustle makes for a sensory overload.
“In Morocco, before you even get to the matter of the sale, you have to coax the owner to sell.” - Tahir Shah, Travels with myself.
Morocco for me was filled with missed photo opportunities. As a rule for most travel photography, respect and boundaries are always more important than getting the photograph. With a country whose history is founded on trade and barter every photograph has a price. Most of my Moroccan photography therefore is candid moments captured along the way.
Thank you for joining me on this journey through Morocco! - William
