Vegetable minimalism

 Revisited by Vera Chekal, young russian photographer, a personal interpretation in a Moroccan context. Here and there. Images are sometimes raw, sometimes highlighted. Small condensed tradition of the country presented with minimalism. Vera Chekal is a young russian student in photography. She came as a guest, together with 4 other photographers of her school in Moscow, past summer. They stayed for a week in Dar Kawa and explored the moroccan culture, the streets, the heat, Dar Kawa, moroccan food. A large repertoire. Many subjects, different lights and atmospheres to shoot. Upon departure Vera shared this serie of photos with us.

Delphine Warin – New Amazons

All were taken to Dar Essalam during a fantasia, a traditional horse show simulating combat assaults. A custom that one can easily imagine as masculine. But little by little women have hoisted themselves on the horses. Delphine Warin named them “New Amazons” those that challenge, intimidating, who proudly wear their statutes. In her photographs, we perceive the ties that bind these women, strength that drive them. A rare and beautiful series by its honesty and intimacy.
