Maison de la Photographie

The Maison de la Photographie of Marrakech is a private foundation created by Hamid Mergani and Patrick Manach in 2009. Our first will is to exhibit the exceptional diversity of Morocco as it was seen by those who visited it, Anonymous travelers or famous photographers, since 1870 to 1960. An invitation to a better knowledge of Morocco.The Maison de la Photographie is, first of all, an Archive, supporting the concept of History of Ideas in Morocco. The first and main adventure was to build that archive.The collection contains photos, glass negatives, post cards, journals, maps, prints, documentaries. Donations have increased the archive: by Daniel Chicault, by Ana Muller, by Jean Pierre Evrard. We organize thematic exhibitions with original prints, not only in the Maison de la Photographie located in the old medina of Marrakech, but with itinerant exhibitions in schools, and partnerships with other cultural institutions.
