As a second-generation immigrant, Paris-based photographer Ilyes Griyeb
is able to see past the illusions surrounding Morocco and those unheard stories – until now. He has spent 5 years working on his first book, Morocco
, which is also his first voyage into photography. Ilyes created this book because no-one had done it before. It is a global vision as well as an intimate and introspective love story to Morocco, featuring mainly his own family and friends in their hometown of Meknès. The work sheds light on the everyday life of rural workers not as hardship but craftsmanship, without exoticism, just truth.
