Illuminating Morocco: The Architectural Photographs of D.R. Cowles

D.R. Cowles


Montreal artist D.R. Cowles offers a fascinating view into the architecture of North Africa through photographs made between 1993 and 2003. Taken with an 8 x 10 inch view-camera and printed on printing-out paper, his images serve as cultural documents of a region in flux. These luminous prints consider the domestic and religious architecture of two cultures in Morocco, elegiac images of recently vanished Jewish communities and the delicate artisanal forms found in Islamic architecture.
