Vibrant Morocco – When simplicity misses the point


My approach to photography is to capture not just what I see, but I feel. This is a scene from the little city of Chefchaouen in northwest Morocco. I had been “in country” for a couple of days, and Chefchaouen is small enough that the twisting maze of medina streets (the walled part of the city, with narrow alley-like streets allowing no cars) was not too intimidating and so I felt fairly uninhibited wandering.

The medina itself has many charms, but on Monday’s, just outside the media gates, there is a very vibrant market. These complicated street scenes, is just how it felt that morning. Simplicity would have missed the point.

Many of my upcoming images from Morocco will be filled with energy and action. The Morocco I visited was vibrant indeed.
