In April 2014, I had the privilege to go in a photo tour around Morocco. I travelled with my grandmother, who is also a photographer, and a friend of ours. Throughout the three weeks long road trip, we visited numerous cities and villages. I was mesmerized by the landscapes, the vibrant colours, the architecture and of course, the people.
Although I did my best to record with my camera every single thing that I found interesting, without a doubt, the shots that I enjoyed the most were the portraits. Even if it was only through hand signs and some mispronounced French words, I got to meet very interesting people from all ages and different occupations. I met a local tour guide, a fruiterer, a tailor, a shepherd, some nomads and more. Having the opportunity to record a bit of the Moroccan culture with my camera has been one of the most enriching and rewarding experiences.
