BEYOND MOMENTS: MOROCCO
BOOK, EXHIBITIONS, TALKS & WORKSHOPS

Join Iraqi photographer and filmmaker Maythem Ridha as he shares his experience of shooting film and photography in the Middle East and North Africa. These events coincide with the launch of his new photo book "Beyond Moments: Morocco - A Photographic Journey".

Born in Baghdad, Maythem Ridha has lived and travelled across the Middle East and North Africa and is now based in London. In BEYOND MOMENTS: MOROCCO, Maythem leads us on an intrepid photographic journey, inspired by the wonderfully evocative locations, interesting characters and stunning light. 

From the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean and inland to Beni-Mellal, we ascend the Atlas Mountains and venture above the clouds to witness the remote and inaccessible Berber Wedding Festival. Presenting some of his award-winning photographs, Maythem shares his experiences of shooting travel, street and environmental portraits in, at times, challenging social situations.

AND WE, AS VIEWERS, ARE GRANTED PRECIOUS ENTRY TO WORLDS WE MAY NEVER HAVE OTHERWISE KNOWN”.
