Behind the mystique
In the far northwest of the African continent lies Morocco, the land of the setting sun.
As I prepare to visit this fabled land, I wonder what adventures and discoveries lie ahead, hidden in the vastness of its deserts or the maze of its labyrinthine streets. Though my journey has not yet begun, my heart races ahead to Morocco.
Morocco is a jewel on the coast of North Africa that beckons to people of many lands. It is a magical place distinguished by the 1,200-year history of its ancient medinas, majestic and forbidding 4,000-meter mountains, and the proud, free, spirit of the Berber people. It is a place of unique colors and customs, a crossroads of many cultures.
Eagerly, I packed my bags and set out in search of adventure, my Sigma DP2 Merrill in hand.
My 2,400-kilometer overland trip through Morocco was planned as a journey of discovery, a quest for the perfect photographic moment.
For my camera, I chose the Sigma DP2 Merrill because I wanted to be able to move about and interact with people freely, yet still enjoy the amazing color-capturing power of Sigma’s new-generation sensor, and the rich expression of its newly developed DP lens.
I would be ready for anything — from fantastically detailed interior scenes, to chance encounters in darkened lanes and long hours under the blazing sun.
With the Sigma DP2 Merrill at my side, I was ready to record and reproduce the myriad impressions and emotions my journey promised to bring.
