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.
In BEYOND MOMENTS: Morocco, Maythem Ridha takes us on a visual adventure in search of the spirit of Morocco and, in the process, discovers a positive and hopeful aspect of the human condition.
