Through a series of reflections I considered Casablanca’s modern and colonial heritage from an urban development perspective. Going beyond a purely documentary approach, I chose to look beyond the confines of the real world to turn towards a broader and more personal narrative.

Between modern utopia and postmodern deconstruction, these images depict the innocence and exuberance of a  turbulent era in the collective memory.
