If you’ve yet to make the venture to Morocco, then these snaps just might inspire you to go. Taken by photographer Louis Lepron in November last year, the heartwarming series is an ode the lesser-seen side of the North African state.

Traveling through villages, deserts and mountains in the country’s Southern region, Lepron undertook a 1,000-mile road trip. With no plans other than to eventually return to Marrakech, shots came as and when he pleased. The final result is a delicate blend of panorama snaps and intimate moments: a testament to Morocco’s vast and varied landscape.

Speaking to Highsnobiety, Lepron said: “The landscapes we went through reminded me sometimes of the panorama of places in the United-States. Like the beautiful park of Monument Valley and the long roads for as far as the eye can see between Marrakech, Ouarzazate and the dunes of Merzouga

“Given a large part of my family lived in Morroco for years, it was for me a way to come back to a certain nostalgia, by comparing some old pictures I’ve seen when I was a child to real landscapes 20 years later.”

With warm, rich colors bursting through the gallery, check out a selection of Lepron’s shots above.
