Dazzled by the light, subjugated by the intensity of colors, many artists have seen their vocation born, or reborn, in Morocco. In the heart of this prodigious laboratory of color, Delacroix, Matisse and many others admired the blue of the sky, the streams of light clashing with the white of the walls and the wild beauty of the landscapes. This series is a systematic collection of everything I love in the streets of Moroccan cities or villages. At every street corner one encounters scenes that seem drawn or painted, but are actually spontaneous compositions of everyday life.
