Adlan Mansri grew up in the north of France. His passion for photography came to life through a documentary "Les oubliés du sable" done at the Sahraoui camp in Algeria. The young French-Algerian then moved to Berlin in 2013 to follow his studies in a self-Organised film school, "Filmarche".
The German capital, known for a freedom which he can no longer find in France, becomes his main source of inspiration. He blossoms and extends his photographic works alongside a liberated youth, freed of any judgement.
His projects, whether in Tunisia or in Berlin close to refugees have allowed him to create a bridge between those who don't have a voice and our view. His campaign "Recycle to Learn" for Havas also received 8 awards including the Campaign of the year 2015 award at the African Cristal Festival. Now a freelancer, he keeps going forward, driven by his inspirations : his encounters, faces, bodies, music and freedom.
