Morocco Photo Gallery

Morocco, the country of the 1001 angles.

The country of the 1001 opportunities and sceneries.
Morocco, one of the most fascinating countries of Africa, seems to be a bright mirage coming out straight from the mind of an exotic and mysterious storyteller.

Deserts secretly guarded by high-walled clay palaces. Sand dunes sprinkled by green lushing palm oasis crossed by camel caravans. Layers of rocky mountains grazed by goats and sheeps. Teeming cities where silhouettes of hooded djellabas melt with pointed head snakes dancing in the dust of a hustled maze of narrow streets. Refined and wide central squares that daily gather nomads, locals, acrobats and musicians giving the tune to monkey tamers and snake charmers.

Constant festival of sounds, smells and colours: Morocco, the land of the senses has everything to offer to the travel photographer.

An exotic, varied and wild Landscape Photography

Up north, the fertile mountains of the Riff.
Over the west, a long coast stretching dreamy strips of sandy beaches along the Atlantic.
On the inside, the Atlas, the Anti-Atlas and the Middle-Atlas multi-layered mountains ranges offering breathtaking landscapes playing with the Light.
Down the South-East, the Sahara desert with its orange to pink sand dunes, absolutely uprooting and totally inspiring.

A multitude of different frames and environments which are really exciting playgrounds for Landscape Photography but also more generally for Travel Photography as you will generally found a human, animal or cultural touch that will bring your Morocco photos to life.

An hectic street life with a folkloric soul and an imperial architecture

Impressive high walled citadels ornamented by some of the most refined use of ceramics and protected by gigantic doors carved in wood or metals, like gold. Internal patios freshened up by elegant fountains and gardens. Old quarters, Medinas, built as labyrinths of narrow streets where the light filters randomly and gives endless opportunities for an interesting Street Photography of Morocco. Round arches and straight towers. Stone buildings and earthen clay kasbahs. Lively souks where you find everyone, everything, anyhow…Busy markets where you witness the authentic Morocco as well as busy Squares, where locals gather by the end of the day for a chat, a tea, a deal or just a feeling of being part of a community.

Beautiful and entriguing cityscapes dominated by piercing minarets sheltering white storks nests, and sang by the eternal prayers of the unconditional devotees. From far away, on the outskirts of the city where the travel photographer would hike to get a general picture of the city in its context, the inspiration is highly reinforced by the 1001 sounds and smells carried by the wind.

1001 fates, 1001 faces

The diversity of the faces you come across with, in the whole country, strongly reflects the diversity of ethnies and tribes that lived or crossed over the country for milleniums. Nomads and travellers, merchants and slaves, sultans and farmers. From Southern Africa to Northern Europe or from Atlantic to the desert. Many reasons, many regions. Many climates and many habitats.
A whole pannel of face and silhouette features, skin tones, clothes, traditions, customs and habits, music and arts. A whole range of interesting people for captivating travel portraits and street photography.

Surprisingly, among all this diversity of people, you can observe some commun characteristics such as strenght and pride. Speaking of which, it is not thtat rare to witness wild and agitated arguments right in the middle of the streets that would might scare you in different places but seem rather normal there. It is like assiting to an urban drama scene, which is very lively and quite thrilling. You might not point your camera though if you don’t want it to take a bad turn on yourself…
But, appart from that hot-tempered side, Moroccan people have a strong sense of solidarity and family. And once they accepte you, they would treat you like their kin.

Morocco Travel Photography : a perfect blend!

So, to resume in a few words : the photographer would certainly include Morocco photos in a Travel Photography Portfolio as the country has a perfect combination of a fascinating Portrait/Street/Landscape Photography. An ideal destination for us, brotherhood of travellers with lenses!
