Montreal based photographer Denis Wong spent a few days in Morocco this winter where he had the opportunity to visit Fez, Chefchaouen, the desert and Marrakech. The photo reporter maintains for his photos’ aesthetics the need to capture reality while managing to immortalize the bright light and the unique textures of Maghreb. «As a tourist, it’s so easy to be overwhelmed by all the colours, but I found important to keep my photographer’s gaze, he explains. My images are on the border of photojournalism and street photography, with a strong graphic component.»
What does he prefer? Capturing the most spontaneous moments, where there is no staging planned. And it is precisely the feeling of having walked the Moroccan streets and landscapes with him who hits us. His work is a subtle yet dazzling assortment of bright colours, shadows and light sources.
