About the Book
This is the second book in the "Letters Home" series, and continues the style of travel photo essay that I started with the "Eight Letters from India" book. In 2010 my wife and I spent a month traveling by car from one end of Morocco to the other, from the bustle of hectic cities in the north to the solitude of the Sahara desert in the south. As I discovered when I first tried to capture my experiences in India, nothing is as powerful a combination as both words and images to convey a sense of place. Words need images to show what is truly there, but images need words to give them back the context that the frame of the camera strips away. I hope that through the combination of the two you will enjoy a journey through the amazing country that is Morocco.
