It was love at first sight when photographer Harry Gruyaert first visited Morocco, and he has been trying to capture that initial impact ever since.

Morocco is the new book by Magnum photographer Harry Gruyaert, in which he captures the enchanting land of the country it's named after. Enamored by the splendid harmony between form and color, people and nature, he has been photographing there since the early 1970s. Morocco provides an outsider's view of the country and how it has developed and changed through the last 5 decades.
