Maison de la Photographie in Marrakech
is launching a new exhibition
LE MAROC DE JEAN PIERRE EVRARD
from October 7th to 23rd 2015. Black and white photos of buildings in Marrakech. Jean Pierre has been a friend of the Maison de la Photographie since its opening and he decided to donate the photographs in this new exhibition, a selection of beautiful prints taken since 1995.
Photo montage – Southern Morocco
Travel writing and photographic projects both flourish in artistic Morocco but what is really interesting is how new social media forms – combined with cheaper high-quality camera lenses – are helping to facilitate a whole new generation of creative reporters.
This week, we stumbled upon a wonderful photo montage, or presentation, of one man’s car journey through Morocco.
Dave Fields, from Portland, Oregon, starts in Marrakech and while his words are minimal – in classic photo journalism style – his amazingly good photographs speak volumes.
Dave says of his adventure:
“Although our stint in Marrakech was short-lived, it does not take long to be absorbed into the fervid pace of the old Medina. Winding through the intricacies of the frenzied souks, losing all sense of direction seems nearly effortless as you follow the barrage of unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells. Marrakech is a true bombardment of the senses.”
He then travels to the High Atlas and winds westwards, then down to the southern coast and Essaouira.
