August’s photography holiday came to an end last week with plans to return next year. Becky, Louise, Susanne, Sara and Sonia, who all arrived individually epitomised what a solo holiday is all about – meeting new people and having a great time together over a shared interest. They’ll be be returning for a new photography project next Easter, Inshallah.
Their galleries were of high standard, particularly those with people. That had a natural flair for engaging with the locals and this really benefited their week’s photography. Becky’s fluent French really allowed her to get some wonderful group compositions, the first real stab at group work here in Essaouira. Louise’s theme of animals offered a distinctly exotic air. Both Sara and Sonia excelled with their generic galleries displaying their versitility with different subject matter, while Susanne produced a superb gallery of people which we couldn’t edit down to ten images!
In all an excellent week of photography and they had a great time exploring the medina for shopping as well as taking the traditional Hammam and our Wednesday walk in the river valley.
