When young photographer Gareth Whatley submitted these ambient shots from a recent trip to Morocco, we couldn't help but pine for a break from the November chill. The bleak black and white images are somehow drenched in heat; the afternoon shadows are so striking and the one colour image in the collection is beautifully vivid. Our favourite is the dystopic plastic palm tree-cum-mobile mast which has a pop art feel to it and seems to be an eerie reminder of both our detachment from nature and of how much we misuse it.
Gareth said of the photos: "The Morocco I saw is trying to find a balance between an economic boom both industrially and through tourism. I tried to capture an air of this mystery in my pictures both in historic settings of ancient palaces and parks in Marrakech to the crane littered horizon of Casablanca."
