Leila Alaoui (1982 – 2016) is a French-Moroccan photographer and video artist whose experiences across different cultural and geographic environments inform her critical and creative practice.
Born in Paris, she studied photography at the City University of New York before spending time between Morocco and Lebanon. Her work explores the construction of identity and cultural diversity, often through the prism of the migration stories that intersect the contemporary Mediterranean. Her images express social realities using a visual language that combines the narrative depth of documentary storytelling and the aesthetic sensibilities of art.
