    Blue and white and just a hint of debris. Is that an arabic letter on the red tile?

    He stood look slowly to the wall, which ended the painted .. did not like the form of land which has become need of maintenance thought of how much need of time and work to collect a price for some of the cement does not think in the new ground, but trying to think of to keep the same colors ground the old and put some potted roses and still loves the place as it is lived as a child …

    There is not much contrast between the two colors (cities), they both could use a fresh coat of paint to start with and then there’s the sidewalks-

    What I find interesting is the inability for “The Sartorialist Project” to function outside of western culture.

    As you state in an earlier post, Africa and Morocco poses difficulties to your ability to capture and document beauty and fashion.

    Is this because the culture is resisting the western frame that a photograph puts on their dress and lifestyle?

    Are they behind the times of the Sartorialist or light years ahead of the Sartorialist?

    How does Scott’s western lens function with a society and culture not willing to let him document and ultimately profit off of their fashion?

    Good luck in your travels! I would love to hear more about the challenges your project faces in different cultures.

    Amazing… the culture and special features in Morocco are one of those things that I’ll never forget.
    Also, there are other cities that have an special treatment for color. I’m mexican, and near my city (MĂ©rida), there is a place called Izamal, where the whole city is painted yellow… all the colonial buildings, the market, the huge monastery, everything! The cobblestone streets and the iron lampposts can be quite unforgettable.

    @Habiba.J…” ethnic culture”…?!!!
    I’ll just chalk this egregious error up to youth.

    As I spent the summer in Portgal, it is fascinating to see how much this looks like Lisbon (or the other way round). The Moorish influence on Lisbon’s architecture is so obvious – love those patterened tiles!

    I really want to go to Essaouira – apparently there’s a music festival in June that sounds brilliant.

    Your Morocco series is too beautiful for words. As Matisse or Yves Saint Laurent were inspired by its colors, so was I on my visit, and continue to be through your images.

    Essaouira is so beautiful, so it is chef chaouen, the most lovely mediterranean village in my opinion! I sometimes see Morocco across the sea when i am on the beach, i’m missing summer so much!
