Roger Davis - At a Grocers in Tangier, Morocco - 1997 - Painting

The grocers (‘Hanout’ in Moroccan) is the centre of Moroccan daily life. Someone in the family will visit it, perhaps, three times a day. Moroccans always have fresh bread with every meal and it is the Hanout from where it is bought. 88 more words

Roger Davis - Shame at the Flamingo Cafe, Agdal, Rabat, Morocco - 1997

This painting records the first time I saw a Moroccan woman sat in the forecourt of a cafe, although it is a common sight now. At that time it was considered a brazen act of defiance against custom and tradition. 75 more words

Roger Davis - Taxi Rank and Pick up Point, Tangier, Morocco - 1997

This painting has quite a peaceful atmosphere. The lighting gives it the effect of a film or stage set, which is something I particularly like about Moroccan towns at night. 73 more words

Roger Davis – My Sister Megan and Me on Top of a Mountain in the Czech Republic – 2014

This church is Chapel of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius at the top of Radhošt Mountain in the Czech Republic. It is the church and the occasion of my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding; indeed it is them waving from the tower of the church. 81 more words
