Casablanca Not the Movie
The most people have seen the movie Casablanca. In fact, the movie wasnt even filmed in the city instead, it was filmed in a Hollywood studio.
Casablanca is the largest city of Morocco where people meet, do nothing, exchange,work and display their appearances, cultures and identities.
Casablanca is a city of diverse cultures, as urbanization transforms the environment,
Orient and occident, tradition and modernity, community and individuality create moments of contrast. Some of these moments happen every day, others happen only once Through
one photograph, we can possibly see, enjoy, think, dont understand and care more about a scene that we probably wouldnt have noticed if it wouldnt have been captured.
This Project documents these moments of contrast to give a close and personal view of Casablanca
life from the perspective of a Moroccan, who was born, grew up and still lives there.
