Fama Volat is Latin for ‘rumour has wings’ or ‘fame flies’. It is taken from the Aeneid, written by the Roman poet Virgil. The image of an angel spreading rumours with her trumpet is the earliest reference to word-of-mouth marketing. To tell this story photographer Marijn de Wijs travelled to Morocco. A place where nomads have been travelling through the country for centuries. Marijn has portrayed the angel Fama as a nomad and shows her journey through Morocco in reportage style.
