    I have loved every picture in this series especially the photos with expressions of true happiness when they probably live in what we consider poverty and/or deprevation. I can only contrast them with the expressions I see everyday in my so called “comfortable” world.

    This photo makes me smile…but in a positive way, it’s like I feel this man close to me, can’t explain exactly what I’m feeling…

    Nice natural light. Dig the hard focus and wide open aperture look as always. Can’t wait to see how you approach the fashionistas after this refreshing time.

    Any clouds in Morocco? The skies you’ve shown are blue-perfect.

    Is it cold there? He looks like a mixture of sad and angry, and definitely cozy with all those layers on. Love that you’re showing us another side of the world. What a difference from Paris and Italy!

    His face has a universal quality. I could see him wearing a suit in London or a trench in Paris. he looks as warm as his clothes

    wow. You should consider making documentaries. I admire you because all of your pictures are real. Is hard to capture greatness when everything is happening so spontaneously.

    you go to Africa and you post pictures of people who earn pittances on your famous blog and all the internet comes and talks about ooooooh the colors and oooooooh when i was in Morocco – when did you ever post a picture of a poor person in NYC dressed in glimmering blue – answer me this?

    Yet another beautiful portrait… and M. Da Chump is right–the skies in these photos are spectacular.

    These pictures are beautfiul, but you are leaving out the utter ugliness of Morocco: the plastic bags caught up in the brush, the extraordinary mountain towns “littered” with satellite disks, the sad and over worked and mistreated donkeys, the endless noise, dirt, and incessant harrasment in the Marrakesh open market and the fear to venture into quiet neighborhoods where one is afraid of getting mugged, attacked or worse. I dreamed of going to Morocco for over 20 years, with the idea that it was like a Delecroix painintg or a Pierre Loti journal entry…the shock!!! When I finally went in 2010, I discovered a third world country full of ugliness, noise and dirt. MY French husband k new better, but he indulged me all the same. I’m cured. I bet you stayed in La Mamounia. You and Garance are privileged. Your images are fit for a dream, not reality.

    Wow!! I’ve really enjoyed this Morocco series of picture. Love the social+cultural feeling that’s way beyond fashion, and so different from what you’ve usually posted as TheSartorialist. And i looooveee fashion! Greetings from Dominican Republic. I wonder when are you coming down to this magical island.

    Ah more proof there is no style in durkastan, just poor oppressed people. I hope you had fun, remember they only smiled at you so you’d pay them I hope you did. Idiot.

    @Lise T, thanks for mentioning Eugene Delacroix, a giant of an artist who was inspired by Morocco, just like Scott.
    There’s a Delacroix exhibit at The Morgan Library and Museum which I’ll be seeing tonight. Delacroix didn’t show the ugliness of Morocco (some mayhem, though), it wasn’t part of his ouvre–just like Scott, I believe.

    The photos in this series are outstanding. They always are. However I think the eye is National Geographic; you have censored the capacity for wonder.

    Dear Scott and Garance, in a complete contrast to where you are right now – I saw the Bill Cunningham documentary at the cinema today. LOVE, LOVE IT! What an eye, what a great career, what a legend, but 28 bicycles stolen to date; no wonder he uses that enormous lock chain … I marvel at how he can peddle the bike at all with such weight in the front basket.

    there ‘s not only that in Morocco, Morocco has many things and many more people to take photos apart people from mountains , it’s true that it is the rural part of Morocco, but Morocco hasn’t just donkeys and people poorly maintained, Morocco also has a lot of luxury and beautiful things I believe that spirit is to give a bad image in Morocco and it is not the case.

    These photos make me sad. Also there is no choice in what these people are wearing. IMO there needs to be a choice in what one wears for others to comment on their outfit. The poverty is heartbreaking.

    So glad to see you are able to get some amazing shots of the people of Morocco – even if you DO have to pay them! So moved by these…

    To John, about your angry comment: I have seen great photos of NYC construction workers on this blog, and other blue collar workers in New York.
    I LOVE this blog for all the people and places I would never get to see if it were not for the Eye and Camera of The Sartorialist.
