So this is something I've been wanting to make for sometime. This project took 3 years to make. I visited Morocco in 2018 and then again in 2019. I collected so many photos and videos that it became really overwhelming to handle. I knew that if I had to make this I had to do right properly because Morocco had changed my life in so many ways. I incorporated aspects of Islamic geometry into this video because this art form stimulated my imagination in a very strong way. So much that I started taking islamic geomtry classes and bought 2 books on them (Listed below). After learning a bit of the art form I decided to feature the 6-star rosette pattern into this video. After that I wanted to include the hand crafts from Chefchaugen, Fes, Tanger and Marrakech are so famous for and of course the sights and sounds of Morocco. Overall - I was very stimulated after this experience it left me wanting to connect to a higher realm. I wanted this video to do justice to the feeling I had and I hope you feel the same way after this.
Back in 2018 I visited a refugee camp in Turkey. I ended up filming a documentary as I met more and more refugees along the way. I started taking pictures of their eyes so the military officers wouldnt delete them later. I ended up filming so much of my experience and the people I met that it turned into a photography project. Let me know your thoughts everyone. just thought I'd share this with you as I'm cutting the full project together.
