Synopsis
Fascinated by the medinas, or Muslim districts, of Morocco's cities, leading French photographer Jean-Marc Tingaud received permission from the Moroccan Palace authorities to photograph these mysterious worlds of a bygone age. Capturing the historic past of a country over 1000 years old, each image in this book is like a painting, transporting the viewer into a timeless atmosphere of calm and neglected beauty. The photographs are accompanied by a series of poems by Morocco's foremost author, Tahar Ben Jelloun who used the photographs as a direct source of inspiration for his writing. Each poem appears in English and in Arabic, transcribed by an expert calligrapher in celebration of the exquisite art of a century-old tradition.
