Essaouira, Morocco

On the coast of Morocco there is a peaceful and powerful city named Essaouira. It is filled with magical spirits and my senses became fully alive while I walked and felt the winds whip up off the sea. A Canary Current aides the locals creating a fishery by the southward movement of the ocean. It has long been considered one of the best anchorages of the Moroccan shoreline.

I photographed and then eventually etched one of the many hardworking and devoted fisherman from this breathtaking city.

The etching was published in the exhibition catalogue and included in the 33rd Mini Print International de Cadaqués, Barcelona, Spain.
