Every journey for me is always a new story to tell and to write on the pages of my life book, but I need a light pen that follows the soft flow of my hand, and that allows me to be relaxed, natural, fresh.
Here again, relaxed, natural, fresh, these are precisely the three qualities that I found in photographing with the Fuji X-E1, and not only for its practicality and lightness. I was relaxed, while i was walking in the souks of Marrakesh, natural, capturing the life in the huge medina of Fes and fresh, after hours and hours of walking and photographing.
Morocco “on the road” has been a fantastic experience, an explosion of colors and flavors in a country rich in culture and unforgettable atmosphere and the small Fuji X-E1 has allowed me to completely live the Moroccan life without being distracted and frustrated by carrying an heavy equipment or an uncomfortable bag, as in the past with the big DSLR.
I mainly used the fantastic Fujifilm XF 18-55 f/2.8-4R LM OIS, high quality lens for any situation that has produced fantastic photos in any condition, high color contrast in high lightsun or low-light at night. For the street photography was the perfect lens for capturing moments in the crowdy and colorful medina and souks, an incredible discreet and silent camera. And it was excellent even at 18mm to capture the panoramic view of Fes and the magnificent red dunes of the Sahara desert.
The result of this “on the road” is a relaxed, natural and fresh tale of the life in the medinas of Morocco, Chefchaouen, Fez and Marrakesh, printed in a book I have just published and entirely “written” with the Fuji X-E1.
