Chefchauen, known in the world as the Blue Pearl, is a mountain town located in Morocco. As the nickname suggests, the village offers you a full immersion in blue tones. This color characterizes all the cityscapes. The natural blue pigment, as we know it, owes its origins to this village.
Our series spans the local architecture, the inhabitants, and the culture we have lived in 120 hours in Chefchaouen.
To understand how to capture their essence we spent a lot of time, through different approach methods, hiding our curiosity, and being more focused as we can. Furthermore, the city has a vertical drop of more than 80 floors, and we traveled every single day to check any angle of the blue city. Being satisfied with the material was a really hard task to complete.
For the last two days, we just worked in the selected spots, taking photographs from sunrise to sunset, collecting daily life situations, and taking the necessary time to reach our photographic goals and complete this journey.
The blue pearl collection consists of six limited edition photographs (each printed in six copies), plus one unrevealed and printed once.
