In March of 2022, Take Your Seat journeyed throughout the cities and countryside of Morocco. Taken over 10 days and covering a distance of 3,500 kilometres, the images we now share have been imprinted on our hearts forever.

We hope these photographs encourage you to discover the land, people, and cultures that captivated us, for yourself. We can't wait to return!

Welcome to Take Your Seat, Morocco!

"As we are warmly welcomed into Casablanca's Hassan II Mosque,
a shared spirituality eclipses our differing faiths.

We trust our camera to capture both the joy and reverence that embraces us."

"By the early morning light of a desert moon, we trek into the Sahara
fully trusting in Aamar and his hump-backed entourage.

As the moon bows to the sun, we become keenly aware of the rare gift
Morocco has generously shared with us."
