a glimpse



glimpse: ORCHESTRATED CHAOS | Some consider the Medina of Fes the world’s largest pedestrian zone. True or false, it certainly is a maze for the feet and senses, carrying you through its veins on odors, hue and madness. And yet, the chaos seems strangely orchestrated, a frenzied symphony guided by invisible notes playing between narrow alley lines, which shower you with rays or shove you into the lingering shades.  

glimpse: THE LAST RAYS | I was trying to find my way out of the labyrinth that the Medina of Fes threw at my feet and senses, while the last rays pierced the narrow alley-twists. So low now in the sky, the sun lent just enough light to freeze this moment in time beautifully before calling it a day. Teasing the nearing night whose black melts all into one, the far star cut silhouettes from the gloom, creating one last outline for the street’s characters to tell their stories.

the same technique as in Latin America or Asia

lands of earth-old tales

Considering that Africa is thought to be our cradle, this journey leads through the first landscapes humans ever laid eyes on – mystical soil that spans from the oldest desert in the world to the enormous wetlands of the Okavango Delta, across lush mountain ranges to turquoise coastlines. see more
