For my Kefta (Berber Burger) I bought my beef at the butcher’s stall ,then went to the chef stall next door to have it cooked.

    The Fuji is ridiculously underrated! I shoot all of my parties and concerts with it.
    Take more food pictures in Morocco!

    We stopped at a similar place while driving over the Atlas Mountains from Marrakesh to Tinghir, my son’s Peace Corps site. I’m guessing they served it with the traditional bread. Jealous!

    I am an art historian. When I saw this image, I was immediately reminded of a painting by the Italian Old-Master artist Annibale Carracci (1560 — 1609) titled “Butcher’s Shop” (c. 1580) and located in Christ Church Picture Gallery, Oxford.

    Maybe you will see the same similarities I do. Here is a link to the image on Wikipedia:

      The young man in the photo looks almost exactly the same as the one in the painting.

    Wow, that is some fabulous photo! That even the chain of the scale in the background and the door behind are so sharply in focus seems miraculous. The composition, the richness of colors and tones . . . I’m really floored, and I’ve been looking at your work for years. Have a great time shooting with your new camera in Morocco.

    I love when you post pictures of this sort. Don’t get me wrong, love your fashion shots too…but it really irks me that shot after shot of person in the street is captured whilst on their phone.

    And now you’re freaking out all your vegetarian readers Scott :)
    Hope you’re enjoying Morocco, can’t wait to see pictures of Mount Atlas, I had the most vivid dream about it some time ago, and I’ll never forget about it.

    I’ve always been afraid of markets: all those meat and fish (still alive!). It scares me. But have to admit, the shot is good.

    Shame, did you have to kill the other guy behind the counter?

    This is one of my favorite things to do in Morocco. Buy your meat, turn around and have it cooked for you. While it’s cooking you take a few steps and buy whatever fresh produce strikes you, then go home and eat!

    If you happen to go to Essaouria, there is a large market and a great fish market. Purchase your fish and around the corner, in a side street is a tiny ‘restaurant’ where they prepare it fresh for you too. It is an incredible experience and delicious too!

    I love all kinds of Mediterranean food especially when visiting North Africa, prepared in the beautiful, colorful tagines.

    Some people think it’s disturbing haha, they forget they have four canine teeth, it’s like not using your nails when you’re itching:)

    OMG can’t believe you are in Morocco!!
    I would love to meet you, it is sort of a dream. I am a moroccan Fashion Business student based in Paris, but now in Casablanca on holidays. I am also taking advantage of this stay to meet actors of the fashion scene in Morocco, for my master’s thesis. I am meeting Sofia Al Arabi today, awesome that you both met!! It would be great if I had the chance to meet you as well, and have you insight on fashion in Morocco. Enjoy you stay!

    With love.
