Ziad Naitaddi (*1995 in Rabat, lives and works in Salé) attempts to express the human soul through his work by photographing people and expressing their inner emotions, currently focussing on the theme of migration and identity. He visualises the emotional side of this topic, the tragic dimension of migration and the difficult decision that emigrants have to make. His projects scrutinise the emergence of hardship, loss of identity and the adventurous search for answers. Ziad Naitaddi’s work has been presented in various exhibitions, publications and collections.
At philomena+ he works together with Vienna-based artist Maria Hanl and the curators Achraf Remok and Elisabeth Piskernik on the exhibition project Emotional Lands.
