African Photojournalism Database
M'hammed Kilito focuses on the small details of everyday life that can provide information on Morocco’s current state. The daily observations, the encounters he makes and the stories he is told inspire him and open the field on socio-political themes such as socio-economic contrasts, migration, identity or social determinism.
M'hammed grew up in Rabat and moved to Canada in 2001. He studied Political Science at the University of Ottawa and Photography at the Ottawa School of Art. Project coordinator and researcher at the Social Planning Council of Ottawa in 2010, then head of the photo and video department at the Montreal advertising agency Ressac (2013-2015), he decided in 2015 to devote himself exclusively to photography and moved back for this purpose to Morocco.
He has participated in numerous exhibitions and his work has been showed in galleries such as the French Institute (Rabat), Rétine argentique (Marseille), the Fondation Alliances (Casablanca), the Fotofilmic gallery (Vancouver), Le 18 (Marrakech), the Tate Modern (London), the National Library (Rabat), Les Nuits photographiques d'Essaouira or the Visual Voice Gallery (Montreal).
His photographs have been published by World Press Photo, The Washington Post, Off The Wall, El Pais, Jeune Afrique, Vu magazine, Diptyk, L'Express, Afrique Magazine, l'Économiste, Huffpost and Telquel.
