"Photos:Always ask permission..." Morocco Local Custom Tip by naranja

Morocco Local Customs: 297 reviews and 362 photos

Always ask permission before you take a picture of a Moroccan. Their religion makes them believe, that the camera takes a photo, but also takes the soul away. I have often seen the fear on people's faces.
I always asked and almost never was allowed to take a picture. How would I have loved to photograph those beautiful Berber women in their colorful clothes!
But I did not! I bought a book instead, well somebody had to take those photos too, I guess!
