Photographer's Note

The Hassan II Mosque (arabic: ‏مسجد الحسن الثاني‎ ) in Casablanca is one of the largest in the world.

It's minaret is 210 metres tall. That means it is so far the tallest minaret in the world and the tallest religious structure in the world das derzeit. The mosque was scheduled to be ready for King Hassan II's 60th birthday in 1989. The mosque was completed and inaugurated in 1993.

This man in traditional moroccan garment is posing for his friend in front of one of the huge gates of the prayer hall.
