Through the door

Riad Laaroussa

With Muslims and the Arab world frequently in the news, I would like to express through portraits the underlying humanity and beauty that we all share regardless of religion or politics. There is so much to focus your camera lens on while in Morocco. The colors, the light, the patterns, the architecture – a picture seems around every corner.  The following are just a few pictures that represent the people and places you just can’t pass up capturing.  People in Morocco are very friendly, and I have never felt uncomfortable at any time.  It is unquestionable that Morocco is a photographer’s place to be.

   With the Moroccan musicians, they sang, and they danced, and they clapped their hands.

Oh, and the music can continue until real late when it comes to celebrating weddings.

Finally, can’t leave Morocco without wearing out a pair of “babouches.” Moroccan slippers that come in an assortment of styles, colors and sizes.

This was just a small glimpse of exploring Morocco from a cultural angle. I hope to write more about this beautiful country as I share other encounters, Insh’Allah.
