Ymane Fakhir

Photography and video hold an essential place in the work of Ymane Fakhir (born 1969, Casablanca, lives and works in Marseille). She first studied at the School of Fine Arts in Casablanca where she was born. When she moved to France, she attended the School of Fine Arts in Aix-en-Provence before joining the National School of Photography in Arles through an exchangeprogram. Today, living in Marseille, she enriches her work with numerous trips from France to Morocco, creating a dialectical, physical and intellectual interaction, between her cultural heritage and her personal experiences.
