Born in Ukraine, M'hammed Kilito grew up in Morocco until 18. He moved then to Canada where he studied photography at the Ottawa School of Art. He also holds a degree in software engineering and a master's degree in political science from the University of Ottawa.
In 2012, hired by an advertising agency in Montreal, he worked as the head of the video and photo department during three years. In 2015, he decided to move back to Morocco and devote himself exclusively to photography.
M’hammed Kilito’s photographic research aims to document the small details of everyday's life, which can inform on the general situation of today’s Morocco. He uses photography as a means of self-expression, to better understand his reality and to reveal his interpretation of the world around him. His photography is also seen as an act of solidarity, a way to confront ideas, engage reflections and raise awareness about socio-political issues and topics of common interest. His choice of subject comes from his concern in concepts like social determinism, the human condition and identity.
