(p.106) Chapter 5 Regards croisés: The Moroccan City by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Liverpool University Press

This chapter, which examines a true collaboration between writer and photographer, focusing on French-Moroccan author Tahar Ben Jelloun and his photo-text projects – Fès (1996) with Bruno Barbey and Medinas (1998) with Jean Marc Tingaud – considers aesthetics and the depiction of Moroccan cities in the photo-texts. Aside from being the first example of a true collaborative project, the two photo-texts are the first example of photo-poetry, and also show that ‘exotic’ photography need not, can be shown not to, perpetuate obsolete visual stereotypes.

Keywords:   Tahar Ben Jelloun, aesthetics, Fès, Bruno Barbey, Medinas, Jean Marc Tingaud, photo-texts, photography, collaboration, cities
