Berlin-based photographer and videographer Svenja Trierscheid recently took refuge from the city’s notoriously harsh winter with a trip to the warmer climes of Morocco.

Based in Marrakesh while in the North African country, she broke away from the city by driving through the Atlas Mountains, heading to Ouarzazate – which is also known as the “Door of the desert,” and relaxing in the seaside city of Essaouira.

The country’s rich colors and scenery made for some stunning photographs, which Svenja shot entirely on her analog 35mm camera. Shooting with a Minolta X-700 and using Kodak Gold 200 film, Morocco’s bright blue sky, dreamy sunsets and golden desert are captured in all of their full glory.
