he is moroccan !! effortless chic and its so true !!! in his life theres no worries about fashion or being chic , hes out of the fashion world but still chic !!! so this is and inspiring photo from real life.. on how you can mix and match…
Lovely. Strong features. Confident attitude. Great landscape. Reminds me of the Eastern Freestate in South Africa, where i live. These pics definitely belong here. Fashion/anthropology/philosophy/travel should not be separated, it’s impossible (and dangerous) to safely compartmentalize these days. Thanx for fucking with the definition of fashion!
I’ve always thought of your photographs as being just about fashion- of course they are more than that, but thats how I distinguish your work from others in my mind. So its interesting to see these photos, far from the world of runways and high fashion, juxtaposed with those of chic Parisians and funky New Yorkers. This makes me thing twice about what fashion is- its just people and expression, and maybe in this man’s case it is completely unintended. This is how fashion should be. Wonderful.
I’m absolutely in love with those pictures. Thank you for sharing your vision on this wonderful trip. And I know that Morocco is NOT a third world country , it is an amazing place where the clima , goodsense of life, great colours, spicy smelling and true people are in harmony .
What a fantastic trip!
I have always wanted to go to Morocco, it’s on my list, but haven’t had the chance yet, but soon, oh soon I hope!
I love it that you are not doing the usual tourist route and more off the road adventures, that is the way to go!
Regards from Peru!
As always, a wonderful photo of the colors. I was wondering, do these cultures use blacks and whites like we do in the civilized(joking) world? I look around me at work and so many do the basic black with white shirts…boring. On the otherhand, it is possible you just don’t capture those.
This is why you are so beloved, because you see beauty — including fashion beauty. I have often lived and worked in remote, extreme, and extremely gorgeous places where people have few clothes, many of which are hand-me-downs, and, as you are showing us, still DO consider what to wear, when, how, with what. Authenticity, as you always highlight, makes it all add up to stunning. THANK YOU!
You’ve happened a man in dress that picks up on every color in the background (though I’m sure natural hues make up much of what you see both across the landscape and from person to person). This photo is beautiful, I would frame it and keep it if I could!
What a fantastic shot. I saw what you said yesterday in the comments about this blog being about inspiration. From the beginning of this Morocco series, I have felt inspired. The colours (in architecture, in market scenes, in landscapes), the textures, the prints… How could all of this possibly be considered un-sartorial?
He looks like the Berber man that lead my school group hiking through the atlas mountains last summer (his name was Ibrahim) My visit to Morocco was my first time out of europe and the scenery was absloutely breathtaking, we also went to essouiera and its amazing and eye opening to immerse yourself in such a different culture, thanks for helping me relive it
Breathtaking picture ! wow ! you could be a photographer for the national geographic ;) I’m impressed because your photos are so versatile, you can switch from streetstyle fashion to travel pictures with that same wonderful talent !
Scott – I so appreciate that you are able to share these deeply personal glimpses into your Moroccan experience. It proves you not only have an eye for style, you also are able to capture the human soul. Beautiful work!
And I await pictures from urban Morocco. I really do appreciate your Morocco photos. Just a caution, the pictures sort of insinuate a ‘noble savage’ feel. The pictures where people’s face almost blends in with the soil colours gives a ‘one with the land/nature’ feel?
Some picture from urban Morocco can certainly help to complicate people’s perception of Morocco. And this may hold especially true for those who may have never been to Morocco.
It’s so easy to get lost in your incredible fashion photography, but this picture reminds me that there is so much more to life. This man is worlds away from my admittedly somewhat materialistic concerns and it is so refreshing to see. Thank you so much for showing such diversity in your blog!
These photos are a wonderful synthesis of everything that is great about the Moroccan people, combined with the leaves falling in Tompkins Square Park on a June Parisian morning. Thanks. http://www.memyselfandmyselfagain.com
