street photography, colorful images with high contrast and shadows in Morocco, Africa, by ivan Margot

Ivan Margot Morocco

Morocco for me, is a country that is directly related to the photographs of Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert. I find myself constantly there. My work is closer to research, free from the constraints of thematic or chronological logic.

After my second trip to Morocco, I gave up black and white photography entirely because colour photos made a lot more sense in this place.

As Gruyaert himself said: “Color is more physical than black and white, more intellectual and abstract. In front of a black and white photo, we want to understand what is happening between the characters. With color we must be immediately affected by the different tones that express a situation.”

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.
