Impressions of Morocco

Essay 146 • Mar 31st 2017

Standing on the edge of the Erg Chebbi Dune with a camera felt pretty overwhelming. I felt it would be impossible to capture its intimidating vastness. Standing there I felt like I had arrived on a different planet These photographs are my attempt to capture both the dune’s softly sculpted fragility and its power, and the otherworldliness of Morocco’s ever changing barren beauty. All photographs are captured on 35mm.

Laurence DonoghueI’m a 25 year old photographer based near Brighton, UK. I’m currently studying filmmaking at university and when I’m not there I try to shoot photos as much as possible. I like to travel as an impetus for photographic stories. I only shoot on 35mm as the process and physicality of analogue photography is very important to me. When not doing any of these things, I try to get out and surf!
