With Karin Huet

Titouan Lamazou and Karin Huet lived for one year in the upper valley of Ayt Bou Gmez, in Morocco. The navigator’s sketchbooks and his partner’s journal blend together to depict Berber faces and landscapes over a cycle of chores, marked by a long winter in the mountains.

A highly authentic narrative.
Karin’s text reveals Berber culture on an everyday basis: traditional festivals, recipes, legends told in the evening by women, artisanal and agricultural techniques, beliefs and religion. More informative passages alternate pleasantly with tales and anecdotes. Rather than an aloof ethnographic description, this is a warm, engaged narrative that is never short on humor or tenderness.

Voyager and talented painter.
Titouan, winner of the Round-the-world Race, is a painter and illustrator. His sketches, taken from travel sketchbooks filled with watercolors, marvelously illustrate Karin’s text. Sensitive portraits and lively drawings contrast with more meticulous compositions and rigorous technical sketches.
