Photographing in Morocco is not easy at all, and it is also a well-known thing.
People hate being photographed. A Moroccan once yelled at me: "hey! I'm not an exhibition!".
Around it is believed that photography steals the soul. Looking at the Moroccans I think back to my Sicilian grandmother, who never wanted to be photographed with pleasure, she told me: "Don't photograph me! I'm not dead!". Indeed, once in Sicily it was used to photograph mainly the dead, and funerals. In Morocco they believe more or less the same things.
