HAF MEMBER’S PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE THROUGH DOORS OF MOROCCO
In June of 2013 the Peace Corps Regional Directors held a meeting in Morocco. Susan L. Q. Flaherty attended the meeting and has shared her photographs from the trip with the High Atlas Foundation. One scrapbook displays photos of a Peace Corps meeting where attendees enjoyed a day of discussion, comradery, and singing. The second scrapbook is of unique designs of doors that captured her eye while traveling through the country. Susan collected Moroccan proverbs, translated into English, to share and evoke intrigue throughout the slides.
Susan shared a short passage describing the scenes that inspired her photos.
“Everywhere I love the doors, of city walls, of homes, of shops, of public buildings, for their beauty and their metaphor. In the medinas, the doors are always ancient, well worn, heavy, each with unique hardware. What other than these heavy doors, many of them shut tight, enclosing something mysterious within, could more eloquently state that the walled medina is a charmingly inward looking medieval and hermetic place, yet remains intriguing and inviting?
