ABOUT

My name is Fernando Vacaflores, I am a Chilean street and documentary Photographer based in Ouarzazate, South of Morocco, near to Marrakech and the Sahara desert. I studied Cinema and Photography at the University of Valparaiso in Chile. Then, I went to continue my studies in Brazil where I met my wife. We now live and work in Morocco. The country is a wonderful place to work with street photography. The fortified cities known as medinas and Kasbahs are a remnant of the past and offers with its local people great opportunities for street photography. The dunes of the desert, the caravans of camels along with its majestic sunrise and sunset are a joy for the eyes and the camera for a Photo Tour. That is why Morocco’s name in Arabic is “Maghreb”, which also means “the place where the sun sets.” I created “Photo Chronicles” in 2014 and I have started to organize Street Photography Walks and Workshops in Marrakech and Photo Tours to the Sahara desert, South of Morocco.

      BOOK

      The book "THE PORTRAIT OF THE FORGOTTEN; SYRIAN REFUGEES IN JORDAN" is a series of portraits and testimonies of Syrian families who are living as refugees in Jordan as a result of the war that started five years ago. These are just a few samples of so many Syrians who are still going through severe suffering. This is a NONPROFIT & FUNDRAISING book. The profits from this book will be entirely dedicated to help the Syrian refugees photographed in it!
