About the Book
Having lived in and travelled across the Middle East and North Africa, Maythem Ridha leads us on an intrepid photographic journey through Morocco, inspired by the wonderfully evocative locations, interesting characters and stunning light. From the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean and inland to Beni-Mellal, we ascend the Atlas Mountains and venture above the clouds to witness the remote and inaccessible Berber Wedding Festival.
Presenting some of his award-winning photographs, Maythem shares his experiences of shooting travel, street and environmental portraits in, at times, challenging social situations. In BEYOND MOMENTS: Morocco, Maythem takes us on a visual adventure in search of the spirit of Morocco and, in the process, discovers a positive and hopeful aspect of the human condition.
