Traditional clothes and robes soaked in (ultra) modern, western, sometimes kitsch symbols or influences: that’s how one could describe the work of the Moroccan born Belgium based photographer. Exploring his roots, culture and DNA in JPEG format, Mous’ compositions are all iconic and screen-lock worthy. Very unique and original in style, you’ll want to check him out, now !

Mohcine is a Casablanca-based creator that never shies from showing his passion for fashion. And he does it in the best of ways. Mixing outfits with super slick settings and edits, the young trailblazer has already worked with some of the world’s best and is not afraid of reaching new heights. With posts that reek of “cool-ness” and suave attitude, Mohcine’s touch is one that will surely influence more than one us.

Jinane Ennasri

Bouncing back and forth between the US and Morocco, Jinane Ennasri captures candid subjects that reveal the real nature of her motherland. Authentic, true and intimate at times, Jinane’s portraits reflect her careful handling of her camera which seems at this point to almost be an extension of her own body.
