Amira Lamti. Tunisia, 1996

Amira Lamti is a Tunisian visual artist who recently obtained her Master in Visual Art from the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Sousse after pursuing her Bachelor in Photography, the field in which she chose to sharpen her first artistic experiments.

She has been exhibiting regularly in Tunisia and completed her artistic residency at the Art Center in Rades, Tunis with a solo exhibition at the Yosr Ben Ammar Gallery in Tunis as part of the Jaou 2022 Biennale. Amira displays her love for the sublimation of a material existence through an intuitively arranged artistic interpretation. She enjoys cutting her realities into dreams which she constructs, through a narrative approach of a contemporary visual artist; a free photographic storytelling.

Hakim Rezaoui. Algiers, 1991

Hakim Rezaoui is an Algerian photographer born and based in Algiers. He holds a master’s degree in international marketing from ESAA, University of Lille. Rezaoui uses the poetic field as the center of his visual creation, around which gravitates a continuous introspection, doubts and ambiguity expressed through blurs, floating and disturbing spaces.
