Award Winner | Photo of the Day | January 2nd
It was late afternoon, I was planing to take a wide angle shot of Ouarzazate from the top of a hill, next to where I live. When looked down at the bottom, I saw this old man walking away. I positioned him at the top of the frame, and at the end of the curve, like his life, an old man at the end of his life curve.

Photographer: Abdellah Azizi (Ouarzazate, Morocco) Registered Photographer
Born in Ouarzazate in 1987, Abdellah Azizi is a passionate photographer from Morocco, who loves to photograph South Moroccan landscapes, people, folklorists’ bands, and the life of the rich part of Africa. After finishing high school, Abdellah applied for the Institute specialized for film industry, where he studied for two years on techniques of lighting, and griping. Then he moved to Casablanca to study camera work, and audio-visual post production for a year. He started to work as camera an assistant, lighting technician, and also worked for a local e-magazine, as videographer. The e-magazine didn’t have a photographer, so they asked him to do some photo assignments for them, and they liked his work. From then Abdellah moved to photography. There are lots of other reasons too, but the main one he believes is the freedom he enjoys in this medium.
