Jelle Oostrom: Morocco

Photo © Jelle Oostrom-All Rights Reserved

Jelle Oostrom is a travel writer and photographer based in the Netherlands, and has interesting photo galleries of his journeys to Morocco, Andalucia, Thailand, Portugal, Italy and Indonesia.

In common with most photographer who travel to Morocco, Jelle's gallery of this country is predominantly of streetscapes, landscapes and, with a couple of exceptions, of people from a distance (as most Moroccans dislike being photographed for cultural reasons).

I especially liked Jelle's photographs of Chefchaouen; the well known "indigo blue" town close to Tangier and the Spanish enclave of Ceuta. Aside from Chefchaouen, the Morocco gallery of 45 photographs features Marrakech, Essaouira, Ouarzazate and possibly Fez.

Jelle also authors a Tumblr blog.
