Portraits of Moroccan People, photographed by Leila Alaoui
Leila Alaoui is a French-Moroccan multi-media artist whose work focuses on “cultural identities and migration”, through short films, photography, and video installations.
In her photographic portrait series ‘The Moroccans’, Alaoui travelled the country with a mobile photo studio with the aim of capturing and archiving the “ethnic and and cultural diversity of Morocco” and the “aesthetics of disappearing social realities”. The photos above are taken from this series.
Alaoui’s work also branches out into activism with one of her most recent multimedia projects focusing on creating awareness on the lives of sub-Saharan migrants in Morocco.
