MAR­RAKESH BY YANN ARTHUS-BERTRAND

The Daily Telegraph - Review - - CONTENTS -

The en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Yann Arthus-Bertrand moved to Kenya with his wife in 1976, when he was 30, for a three-year study of a fam­ily of lions in the Maa­sai Mara. (He would later call those lions, the sub­ject of his first book, “his pho­tog­ra­phy teach­ers”.) While he was in Kenya, he earned his liv­ing as a hot-air bal­loon pi­lot, and be­came a pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate of the wis­dom that can come from tak­ing a lofty view of the things go­ing on down on earth. Now 76, his new book, Morocco from the Air, col­lects to­gether his pho­to­graphs of a coun­try of ex­treme con­trasts: some of it green and lush, some high and snowy, some dusty and busy. Here we see a car­pet of car­pets, laid out in a park to the west of Mar­rakesh. thame­sand­hud­son.com
