If it is a Moroccan summer mood you’re looking for, look no further.
Almost exactly one year ago, in the early summer of 2013, the Greek photographer Yiannis Hadjiaslanis travelled around Morocco and photographed eleven urban centres – including Casablanca, Tangier, Fez and Marrakech – over 23 days.
The photographic journey and project – called Intersections – intensely highlighted his discovery of a contemporary and colourful Morocco. Avoiding the typical travel images or clichés he shows how multi-layered Mediterranean atmospheres and curious colours permeate into the everyday.
Now, you can now view some of the fascinating work from this particular project online at Hadjiaslanis’s website: http://www.hadjiaslanis.com/index.php?/work/intersections
Best known for being one of the finest cafes in Fez, Cafe Clock is about to open a branch in Marrakech (address: 224 Derb Chtouka).
As well as serving delicious coffee and lip-smacking food there will be the eventful live music and cross-cultural events that the café in Fez has long been respected for.
One of the most exciting events will happen next month, on February 27th at 5:00pm, when a story telling group will perform their debut show at the cafe.
The three apprentice storytellers have been in training with a master storyteller, 73 year-old Ahmed. Weaving in the history of storytelling with Moroccan fables and morals, Sara, Oussama and Malika hope to present modern Moroccan storytelling to new audiences, in Arabic and English.
Also we heard that Café Clock is partnering with the Biennale and Richard Hamilton, author of The Last Storytellers. Keep up to date here: www.cafeclock.com
