After walking for hours through the busy alleyways of the old Fes Medina, amidst a suffocating heatwave I came across the El Attarine Medersa. That morning I had planned an “easy day”, a quick walk around the Medina before seeking refuge in the comfort of my hotel’s aircon; temperature outside was 46C/115F.
The 14th century University, one of the oldest in the world, was a little piece of heaven. Beautiful detailing in the arches, colourful mosaic tiles and fountains.
Midday is usually not my favourite time to photograph but in the case the diagonal shadow crossing the internal courtyard enhanced the delicate features of the building.

Serge Horta is a Hong Kong based documentary photographer. Through his academic training in architecture, he is able to capture impossible order amidst the chaos of cities. His photographs are the result of a hypnotic obsession with how different cultures live, adapt and interact with the built environment, from the perfectly manicured suburb to the sprawling slum. His extensive portfolio documents the metamorphosis of the urban landscapes in which he has lived or merely traversed - from Sydney to New York, London to Guangzhou. Amid noise and chaos, Serge manages to find moments of peace and silence. Having photographed in over 70 countries, he encounters and engages with local residents, we see deeply personal and immensely human stories emerging from what’s often overlooked, making a powerful, penetrating impression on the viewer. Serge’s work is held in private collections in the United States, Australia, Hong Kong, The Netherlands, UK, Spain, U.A.E., France, and Switzerland.
