LEILA ALAOUI

PRESENTATION

Franco-Moroccan photographer and video maker (1982 - 2016) represented by the Galleria Continua, Leila Alaoui has studied photography at the University of New York. Her work explored the construction of an identity, cultural varieties and migration in the Mediterranean area.

She used photography and video art to express social realities through a visual language that situates at the limits of documentary and visual arts.

Her work is exhibited internationally (Art Dubai, the Arab World Institute and the European House of Photography in Paris) and her photographs published in numerous newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times and Vogue.

In January 2016, while she was appointed by Amnesty International to accomplish work in Burkina Faso, Leila Alaoui was the victim of the Ouagadougou terrorist attacks of January 15, 2016. She succumb to her injuries on January 18, 2016.
