Goods traffic is booming in Morocco due to its natural resources and major seaports. Photographer Stijn Hoekstra has used his series “Cinematic Morocco” to document a route much travelled by MAN trucks. It leads from the Berber villages in the Draa Valley through the red ravines of the High Atlas to the Atlantic coast. The road is not always asphalted and well-developed. But the winding tour past grandiose landscapes and picturesque loam castles conveys the magic of Arabian Nights.
