What lovely, lovely post, Zed. The insights you give about the culture of this Muslim country and people’s reluctance to be photographed add an extra dimension to the pictures. Many people do not fully grasp this aspect of street photography and its even more challenging counterpart, international travel photography: you must be willing to understand and respect people on a deep level that allows you to capture them at their most natural. You have certainly done that here. I love the photo of the two craftsman talking and smiling while they work! The whole series sparks curiosity, emotion and wonder in a way that makes your work true fine art photography, and not just documentation. Congratulations! Looking forward to more.
Glad I found your post on google+ :) About a month ago I had to go to Marrakech for a brief business trip. It’s an astonishing city, wish i could spend more time there.
Oh, so if you were up early taking pics in the Red Light District, you obviously didn’t do anything the night before or you would have been going to bed right about then. ;) These are really nice images. It’s hard to believe such a quaint part of town during the day gets so wild at night.
I love seeing pictures of different cultures and would really like to visit Marrakech. I have a question about one of the images – 5th pic down with the kid on the bike looking into a cooler. There appears to be an assault weapon pointing into the picture on the right. Is that what that is?
I’m sure it would make for a better story, but the ‘weapon’ is a motorcycle handlebar peeking into the frame. :) Thanks for the kind comment.
The lens flare on the upper right actually looks like an eye peering through the clouds. I really love this pic.
Exactly! That jumped out at me as well. Sometimes nature presents the best pictures to people who happen to have a camera.
Those are beautiful pics. I’ve always wanted to visit the Red Light District but never even considered hanging out there in the daytime. After seeing your shots, I want to now.
I wasn’t aware of the Muslim prohibition (or fear) of having their pictures taken. But I think your candid pics actually came out better than if the subject posed for them.
Based on your pics – and what I know about the Red Light District at night – I’d say the town has a split personality. Beautifully done. I’d love to have these framed for my Sun room.
Heel goed gedaan en boeiend!
Van Gogh art museum, Anne Frank’s hiding room, Red Light District, cheeky weed cafe’s … veryyyyyyy excited for Amsterdam
Marvelous, what a website it is! Keep it up.
Hello! Interesting article! I came here from Google plus. Very, very good photography!
I lived in Amsterdam for 5 years but I have never seen it like you have projected. Awesome job!
Oh! amazing pix… I wanna visit this place

I so much love this post! Especially the picture of the statue of Majoor Bosshardt is truly excellent and captures exactly what this wonderful woman’s life was all about. Greetings from Zwolle <3
