A tapestry of impressions
I met many people on my travels through Morocco, and was always impressed by their hospitality, and with the warm handshake they would give me when we parted.
With images of their clear, confident gaze and proud spirit captured by the Sigma DP2 Merrill to remind me, I remember them all.
Idris, the quintessential camel herder. “My friends talk about emigrating, but not me. I want to stay here, with my camels.”
Sitting in a tent woven of camel hair woven by her mother Aicha, the young Berber girl Khadija seemed quite serious.
Youssif, a young boy, was a little nervous about having his picture taken for the first time. Abdel-allah, aged 73, could still climb date palms with ease.
The lovely sisters Iman and Siham, proud protectors of their riad’s heritage of hospitality.
Abdellatif could not hear, but was an expert bridle and harness maker who proudly displayed photos of horses wearing his handiwork.
I found Hamid searching for tender grass for his lambs. Even in this backlit shot, the RAW data captured by the Sigma DP2 Merrill reveals every detail of his craggy face.
