It’s blue and orange season. A photo of freshly picked oranges from Morocco’s “Blue Pearl,” Chefchaouen, has won the photographer the 2018 International Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) award.
Rabat – Isabelle Smith, a 14-year-old photographer from Collierville, a small town in Tennessee, has shown the beauty of two vibrant colors: that of the delicious-looking oranges and the blue hues of Chefchaouen.
Another photo by Smith captures the spontaneity of childhood, the captivating shades of blue, and a glimpse of oranges.
Named winner of “Young Travel Photographer of the Year,” among other photographers from 142 countries around the world, Smith’s Chefchaouen photos were picked from the world’s best travel photography list.
The TPOTY describes Smith’s photographs, writing: “Isabella has made four images which sing with colour and provide glimpses of the lives of the people here, even including movement and tranquillity.”
Throughout her life, Smith has had trouble focusing on all subjects at school and was later diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia.
Smith, however, does much better telling stories through photos. The teenager’s love for photography brought her to Chefchaouen, where she resolved to craft stories about the city and share them with the world.
