The Light of Marrakesh

“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ” — Aaron Rose

I visited Marrakesh back in September 2010, during the end of the Ramadan. I had already experienced the harsh light of the desert in Tunisia, Tijuana and the Mojave desert in the US, but somehow, it became quite challenging to shoot throughout the day in the Moroccan city.

Being a landscape photographer, I know that the perfect light is during the twilight and the golden hour, but I guess that when you are visiting a new place for the first time, you just want to capture the busy life in the streets and don't miss the moment.

Here is a series of photographs I shot in one day, where you can see how the light changes from early in the morning into the deep dark night.
