When and how did the film journey begin for you?

One year ago I met a friend and photographer from Norway and he introduced me to film photography. Film photography is my new drug, I’m taking pictures of a bittersweet land, two different sides of Morocco.

What type of film do you usually shoot and what made you choose it?

Anything I can find in colors because it’s very difficult to find film in Morocco and specially this last months . Mostly expired fujifilm 200

Between black and white and colour film which would you choose?

Colour . I wish to see the world like in film colour prints.

What lenses do you use?


Do you perform any experiments on film?

As I really love my culture I used some typical Moroccan ingredients to soak film like mint tea and preserved lemon juice.
