During the same weekend in 2015 that an American politician proposed banning all Muslim travel to the US, I traveled to the Muslim country of Morocco for the second time in a year. Counter to the claim that Muslims “hate” Americans, I found the Moroccan people warm, friendly and welcoming. As one man told me, “please remember that Islam is a religion of peace, and we are peaceful people.” The streets of the medinas in Morocco are defined by the walls. The walls do not exist to separate or divide, however. They funnel commerce, vehicles, animals, and families through the winding streets. They glow with color and light. Ancient stucco crumbles, is buttressed and scaffolded, and is then rebuilt. This series presents the Moroccan people in the streets and walls of the medinas of Fes and Marrakesh.
