The Moroccans by Leila Alaoui Leila Alaoui was a French-Moroccan photographer and video artist. For her series, The Moroccans, she travelled the country with her mobile photo studio to capture the ethnic and cultural diversity of Morocco. Leila died from injuries suffered in a terrorist attack in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso on 15 January 2016 (aged 33) The Moroccans is a photographic series of contemporary live size portraits. Its images are an attempt to bear witness to the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of Morocco, an archival work on the aesthetics of disappearing traditions through contemporary digital photography. In Muslim countries it is generally frowned upon to depict the human figure as per an approach called aniconism. Aside from the striking visual beauty, this belief makes French-Moroccan artist Leila Alaoui’s series of portraits The Moroccans all the more interesting and thought-provoking. bit.ly/2wvIKqU, bit.ly/2vD0zYS
