Morocco Street Photography

We recently spent 2 weeks traveling through central and southern Morocco, taking in the fortified cites, ancient souks and desert landscapes of this beautiful country in North Africa.  Color and life abounds in the streets and we were warmly welcomed everywhere we went.  The shopping districts and souks are the lifeblood of commerce in Morocco and I used my camera to capture the energy and vitality of them.  The moment a camera is brought up to eye level, most Moroccans will avoid being photographed.  To get around this problem, I shot these images at waist level, simply pointing my wide angle lens at a scene and hoping for the best.  As I used this technique more, I became more comfortable with it and was able to quietly document the daily life of the people here. Enjoy!
