Maison de la Photographie

Derb Tarik Sidi Bouharba, Marrakesh, Morocco

212 (0)-5243-85721

La Maison de la Photographie is a small independently run gallery tucked away in the winding streets of Marrakech’s Medina (about 200 meters behind Koranic school Ali Ben Youssef Madrasa). The gallery has over 5,000 original prints and 3,000 glass plates in its collection depicting the culture and diversity in Morocco from the late nineteenth century through to the middle of the twentieth century.

Unfortunately most of the collection isn’t on display due to size restraints but the collection that is, is wonderful. A highlight is the first ever documentary of Berber life, shot by Daniel Chicault, a year after Moroccan Independence (1956), and in color. After leisurely browsing through the gallery’s three-floor collection, visit the shop.  Also relax and refresh yourself with a cold drink or lunch on the terrace, from where you can look out across the vast expanse of rooftops that comprise the Medina, as well as spot some of the more famous landmarks of Marrakech.
