Ngoc Minh Ngo's Un Jardin Rêvé, "Dreamed Garden", opened at the Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakech. This is just the second photography exhibition hosted by YSL to date; the last being the fashion house's inaugural 30 years show in 1992. This exhibition showcase displays the artist's photographic works, in collaboration with the Italian writer and botanist Umberto Pasti, to also support their co-created publication A Garden of Dreams.

Ngo is a photographer known for her beautiful, dream-like captures of botanicals, garden landscapes, and nature. Dreamed Garden, as the exhibition title suggests, will display work in her signature style alongside writings and discourse by Pasti of Morrocan flora. Ngoc states the origin of this exhibition came through an invitation from Pasti himself.

“In May 2015, I briefly visited Rohuna for the first time. Umberto Pasti then asked me to collaborate with him and tell the story of this special place."

We worked with Ngoc to print the photographs that went into this exhibition, each print done so on Hahnemühle Photo Rag Bright White, her preferred paper. Dreamed Garden looks at the interactions between culture and nature, as well as the intersection between art, culture, and history, through representative flora of the Moroccan landscape.
