Since returning to France from our trip to the US one week ago, I have been working nonstop. This means I haven’t been able to take any pictures or “do” anything terribly interesting since. Today, however, I finally found some free time and decided to share a series of photos from my archives. Five years ago I had the good fortune of visiting Essaouria, Morocco (formally Mogador). The voyage was my first, and only, trip to the continent of Africa and it was a spectacle for the eyes. Essaouria is a fishing town on the Atlantic coast and the port and medina are very lively and colorful. Back then, I was still shooting Fuji Velvia, a wonderfully rich slide film, and using my Nikon F100 film camera.
