Marrakech, Morocco’s Red City: a Photo Set

Marrakech, Morocco is one of those places that travelers usually love or hate. I am happy to say, I fall firmly into the former camp.

I’ve been enchanted with the place since my first visit in 2000. I love Moroccan mint tea, served in beautiful glasses. I buy them as souvenirs and use them for wine at home. The light is so beautiful and warm, reflecting off the colored walls of the medina I love shooting there.

Nicknamed “The Red City” because of the hue of the walls of the city’s ancient medina, I thought this photo set was a fun representation of some of what I love about Marrakech– from portraits of locals to a woman henna painting the arms of a tourist on Jemaa El Fna, the city’s most famous square.

All of the images in this post were shot on my iPhone 5s using the Oggl app by Hipstamatic.
