Moroccan Photo of the Day

Beirut-based Moroccan photographer Leila Alaoui has packed up her cameras, lights and a small portable studio and set off on a road trip to some of her homeland’s remote rural villages. On a mission to document vanishing traditions, she sets up her small studio on market day and takes portraits of the locals against a plain black screen.

A selection of the best photographs from the ongoing project is currently on show at the Black Gallery in the Beirut Jewellery Souks, as part of Lebanon’s second annual Photomed festival.
