During several trips to the region in recent years I’ve realized a long held fascination with the desert south of Morocco and its dunes. The initial wow upon a first visit was quickly replaced by a creative impulse to rationalise the location into images that go beyond a recording the vastness of the scene. Quality of light, texture and form came to the fore as well as photographing after rainfall. The classic approach of dunes receding offers wonderful intersecting lines but I also wanted to include curves and the vast pools of shadow that help create semi-abstract imagery.
