A huge privilege to participate in the International Festival of Photography in Chefchaouen in Morocco. In the past June I went to Chefchaouen invited by the organization to become part of festival jury and also impart a Workshop lighting in photography, titled "From portrait to fashion, light." In the Jury, I had the great pleasure of sharing responsibility with Saleh Alustad from United Arab Emirates, president of the Union of Arab Photographers alma mater of the Festival, Juan Mariscal López, photographer of Cadiz, Mustapha Derouich of the University Mohamed V of Morocco, Amor Abadah Harzallah from the Photographers Association of Tunisia and Moroccan photographer Abderrahmane Elgarh.
After a very interesting discussion, we resolved the winning photographs were those of Robert Hale of the United States of America, awarded the first prize, the second prize went to Italian Filippo Manaresi and third prize for the Moroccan Mohamed Ali Soulimane. Great work all. Congratulations!
The Workshop "From portrait to fashion, light" I could impart in Casbara Museum and practices in the old town of Chefchaouen with the photographer Casafan. A real pleasure to teach photography to students so committed and enthusiastic, in a wonderful place, as is the ancient city of Chefchaouen. An unforgettable experience.
