Mesmerising Marrakech in Photos

Photography enthusiast Tom Redgrove recently visited Marrakech in Morocco and has kindly shared some of his work with us. These pictures are a master class in showing how finding the fine detail of a destination can bring it blazing to life so much more effectively than snapping the more obvious touristy sites, of which Marrakech certainly has no shortage. The best – and only – way to really appreciate this ancient city from a photography perspective is to abandon the guide book and find your own path, to create your own canvas and splash it with the burnt pastel palettes with which Marrakech is so synonymous.
