For three years, photographer Mary Cross travelled throughout Morocco, from the Sahara Desert in the south to the Rif Mountains in the north, visiting large cities, small villages, and the country's little-known, inaccessible regions. Gathered in this volume is a selection of her photographs, which seek to capture Morocco in all its remoteness, beauty and mystery. From mountain chasms to desert oases, from kasbahs to souks, Cross chooses subjects in which history impinges on the present, architecture that gives expression to the country's past, and natural surroundings that offer a continuing commentary on the lives of the people within the landscape.
