M'hammed Kilito (1981) is a Moroccan photographer based in Marrakech.
He studied photography at the Ottawa School of Art (2006) and he also holds a master degree in Political Science from the University of Ottawa (2012).
His interest lies in the the small details of everyday life that can provide information on Morocco’s current state. The daily observations, the encounters he makes and the stories he is told inspire him to work on socio-political themes such as the deep divisions based on class and heritage, migration, identity and social determinism.
M’hammed’s work has been showed nationally and internationally in galleries and museums such as the French Institute (Rabat, Morocco), Rétine argentique (Marseille, France), the Fondation Alliances (Casablanca, Morocco), Fotofilmic gallery (Vancouver, Canada), Le 18 (Marrakech, Morocco), Tate Modern (London, UK), National Library (Rabat, Morocco), Les Nuits photographiques (Essaouira, Morocco) or Visual Voice Gallery (Montreal, Canada).
His photographs have been published by World Press Photo, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Off The Wall, El Pais, Jeune Afrique, Diptyk, L’Express, Afrique Magazine, l’Économiste, Huffpost and Telquel.
Some of his past commissions include United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Aman Museum, Bank Al-Maghrib, Al Ajial Holding, Architecture Biennale Rabat-Salé, British Council.
