Jardin Majorelle – the Blue Garden

Hey guys,

today I’d like to show you some more impressions of my days in Marrakech. After the Djemaa al Fna, where you’re about to get 1000 different impressions ranging from snake charmers to mobile shops and unique odors, and the souqs, a showcase of interesting handcrafts, there’s of course a lot more to see.

Another of my true highlights was the Jardin Majorelle or the Blue Garden. It was created by French painter Jacques Majorelle in 1923. Today the artist and his art have largely been forgotten, however, his garden belongs to one of the places in town that’s worth to be visited. Another interesting detail about this magical park is the fact that it was purchased in 1947 by famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his boyfriend and business partner, Pierre Bergé.

At about the same time the garden was also opened to the public. Yves Saint Laurent always got inspired at this magical place for his fashion collections. The colors – the most different nuances of green tones mixed with the shiny blue of the area and the yellow details – won’t just inspire fashion designers, of course. J

But enough information for now, you better take a look at what this garden offers from a photographer’s perspective! I took a tour with my Canon EOS 5D MarkIII and my favorite travel lens, the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art.
