I was born and raised in Morocco. I then roamed the world before settling down in, Brussels Belgium

My approach consists in using the photographic medium to explore and experiment with the abstract aspect of photography.

I am more interested in the purely aesthetic and graphic rendering of the image where the formalist composition takes precedence over the object represented. Beyond celebrating the graphic aspect of objects, lights and shadows, I am also keen on the formalistic aspect of the presence of human beings in my frames

I try to break away from the realistic documentation of things in order to reveal the aesthetic and universal potential of a moment, a feeling or an object.
