BEYOND MOMENTS: MOROCCO

Join Iraqi photographer and filmmaker Maythem Ridha as he describes how he shoots film and photography projects in different parts of the Middle East and North Africa inspired by the wonderfully textured locations, interesting characters and stunning light. Presenting his work, he will be discussing the methods he uses to shoot travel, street and environmental portraits in, at times, hostile environments.

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.

"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. a-n (formerly The Artists Newsletter)

"Only a photographer from the Arab and Muslim world has this depth of insight to reveal the culture from within". WHAT'S ON

“There is an almost three-dimensional effect in the intimate way with which he has captured these often un-tapped-into communities…The patchwork of humanity grows once connection is formed, and so relationships expand. And we, as viewers, are granted precious entry to worlds we may never have otherwise known”. The Platform UK
