SOLO SHOW -- "Morocco -- In Living Color" on Exhibit April 2 - July 30, 2014 !!
“Morocco – In Living Color” opened at the Crane Public Library in Quincy, MA on April 2; moved to the Hingham Public Library for the month of May, followed by Milton Public Library in June and finally the Newton Free Library in July. The exhibit captures impressions of the people, culture, landscape and architecture of Morocco. The images take the viewer on a fascinating journey through Morocco, from the exotic markets of Marrakesh, to the narrow alleys of the ancient scholarly city of Fez, to native Berber villages, and to a camel safari in the Sahara desert.
Culturally and linguistically, Morocco has been impacted over the centuries by both European (especially Spanish and French) and Arabic cultures. Although influenced by the spice of these distinctive flavors, and currently adjusting to the influx of modern civilization on traditional ways of life, Morocco maintains its own unique identity. Maureen's images of the Moroccan people capture the cultural diversity of this fascinating country. The photographs have been printed using a pressurized heat process on pearlescent metallic medium which intensifies the beauty of the colors. The presentation on high quality canvas allows the images to be displayed without a layer of glass separating the viewer from the image, thereby heightening the sensation of being present in the picture.
A native of Washington D.C. now residing in Milton, Maureen began her photographic explorations with black-and-white film during high school in Heidelberg Germany. After graduating from Harvard University she pursued a career in government-assisted and commercial real estate before becoming a full time travel photographer in 2011. She is a member of the Milton Art Center, South Shore Camera Club (where her work has received several first place awards), Griffin Museum of Photography, and is a juried member of the Russell Gallery at the Plymouth Center for the Arts. Her work can be seen on her website at www.maureen-fahey.artistwebsites.com.
