Maison de la Photographie in Marrakech

The ever wonderful Maison de la Photographie in Marrakech sends out a monthly photo if you sign up to receive emails their collection. I hope they will not mind me sharing this month’s image with you all, as I think it’s exceptionally beautiful.

The Maison de la Photographie is a wonderful quiet venue to admire their impressive collection of photographs of the 20s-60’s. Enlarged images bring the history to life, and many of the scenes depicted can be found in ‘real life’ just outside the walls.

If you are keen, you can find out more here, and also sign up for next month’s image:
