Abdelhamid Belahmidi is a Moroccan conceptual and documentary photographer, based in Casablanca. He uses photography to give an artistic expression to the invisibility of his living experiences.
Through his series “Where is the Sea” and “Copy machine” he projects his artistic approach, representing his experience as an employee, symbolizing different emotions he goes through, trying to overcome a living system of modernism and massive consumption, in an allegoric representation of ourselves into a hyper connected society.
In 2021 he co-founded the Collective “Kan3awd” that aims to tell visual stories through photography and filmmaking, working on topics related to post-modern society and people in constant change. His works were exhibited at Sharjah Art Foundation for VPS8 (2020) and VPS10 (2022). And featured in group exhibitions at PHotoESPAÑA, Madrid (2018); and Cordoba Photography Biennale (2018).
Moreover, Abdelhamid is a documentary photographer. He covers the thirst of a generation for life in meetings as L’Boulevard Festival, where he transforms into pixels the message of youth, when celebrating their differences and expressing fully their identity.
