Pool Reflection, Rabat, Morocco

Photograph, 2015

Artist’s Statement
Very early on I developed the habit of photographing early in the morning (just at sunrise) both for the quality of the light and the absence of people. The hotel I was staying in was modeled on traditional Moroccan architecture so it had this wonderful glow when the sun struck it. The reflections in the blue swimming pool captured both the warmth and coolness of the two subjects.
