From Casablanca to villages, farms, and remote desert areas, Watson captures the soul of Moroccans from all walks of life in his portraits and extraordinary photographs of landscapes, architecture and animals. 140 duotone illustrations.
Renowned photographer Albert Watson recently spent 39 memorable days in Morocco. With the personal insight of a diarist and the detailed eye of an artist, he has captured the physical beauty and spirit of this remarkable country in transition. From thousands of photographs on an itinerary that took him all over the country, Watson has culled the most evocative. These luxurious platinum prints, some with antique sepia tones, combine with Arabic calligraphy or Moroccan manuscript pages to conjure a feeling of the place, its history, its future.
From Casablanca and other major cities to villages, farms, and remote desert areas, here are portraits, extraordinary landscapes, architecture, and animals. Watson has captured the souls of Moroccans from all walks of life-members of the royal family and the heads of provinces, grizzled farmers, and women and children. In words as well as pictures, Watson speaks of Morocco's people and its promise, and gives his personal impressions of the country.
This book carries Albert Watson beyond his brilliant fashion photography, seen in the pages of Vogue and Harpers Bazaar, to a multi-layered art that reveals the life of a country and the journey of an artist.
Albert Watson is an internationally known fashion photographer whose previous book, Cyclops, was an immediate success. His work appears regularly in the world's top fashion magazines.
