A MOROCCAN STORY
Words and photos by Tatiana Nadyseva
It is only about a week since my husband and I came from Morocco. Memories are still fresh, and the nose is still sunburned. Morocco took us by surprise: from the soaks of Marrakesh, where one can stand for hours bargaining; to the desert dunes of Sahara filled with ancient magic and waves of the Atlantic Ocean so well-known to the surfer community -- the country is filled with charm.
We travelled for 10 days visiting Marrakesh, Atlas Mountains, Atlantic Ocean and Sahara desert from Zagora and Merzouga.
We were sleeping in the desert camps with no restrooms or running water, and in luxury Riads.
We ate olives and tajine.
We bought carpets and dates.
We saw sunrises and sunsets.
And we took pictures, many pictures -- to preserve this wonderful journey and tell a Moroccan story.
Having lived in 9 countries, Tatiana (Tania) is a nomad and nomadic photographer, who loves to explore the themes of solitude and abandonment. She likes fog, and the magical illusion it creates. She likes strangers walking in the dark and in the sunlight. She likes to capture beaches out of season, seasides in the storm, streets in the sunrise, rooms after you have just closed the door. The fragility of the moment, its elusive beauty and the feeling of being lost in the world.
