The story Maroc is defined by what I absorbed along my travel through Marocco at the threshold between the familiar and the unknown.
A country that smells of orange trees, rose petals, exotic and beguiling scents but also the breathtaking odour of decaying flesh and woodfire that immediately brings eyes to burn. It is a land of mystery and it is intense.Intense like the countless street vendors and farmers wrapped in heavy robes under the bursting sun that are struggling to survive. Intense like the endless labyrinths of the souks that threaten to suck under who ever dares to enter and the hidden remnants that tell stories from the ancient world.
The story Maroc is about ambiguity and emotional intensity. I used light and darkness to transform subjects to not only appear as what they are and to establish an unsettling atmosphere.
