Photographer's Note

The Ben Youssef Medersa was an Islamic college in Marrakech.
The Koranic school was founded during the 14th century and is the largest Medrassa of Morocco.
Its 130 student dormitory cells cluster around a courtyard richly carved in cedar, marble and stucco.
The Medersa surrounds a grand courtyard, a very tranquil patio with a shallow stone pool.
The artwork follows geometric patterns, often repeated and intertwined, which is typical of Islamic Art.
