There are some wonderful vintage images taken in Morocco.
Photographers like Irving Penn, George Dambier, Cecil Beaton . . .
they all took photographs there.
Some iconic, others simply everyday pictures images of friends and colleagues, like this one of Truman Capote in Tangier above by Cecil Beaton
Below are some of my favourites.
Talitha Getty for Vogue in 1971
My favourite image of Yves St Laurent working at his desk in Morocco.
I wish I was sitting at a desk under an arch overlooking my garden in morocco right now!
Georges Dambier photographed Suzy Parker for Elle in 1953
I love the prickly pear cactus in the background of this image – it always reminds me of the moroccan countryside.
This photograph was taken by Irving Penn of his wife Lisa Fonssagrives in 1951
So many beautiful elements in this composition!
And of course this selection would be incomplete without the somewhat incongruous image
taken in Morocco in 1958 by William Klein.
