Yes, I admit, I have a fascination for doors… On every travel I’m trying to find a nice door to photograph. Only nice? No, the door should have a story. Who are or were the people living behind that door? What kind of world does it protect?
In Morocco I was wandering the alleys of the town of Ait Benhaddou. I came across this door that I immediately photographed. How could I know people were still living there? A woman opened the door for me and I was embraced by the sounds and smells of goats, chickens and other small live stock! She showed me around in her house which to me was a valuable experience.
Doors are truly fascinating. They can open a totally different world. A new hidden world, only to enter when the owner allows you to. Exploring people and cultures means opening doors to get to know them. What kind of surprise have you ever encountered opening a door?
