About

M'hammed Kilito is a Moroccan photographer based in Rabat.

He studied photography at the Ottawa School of Art and he also holds a master degree in Political Science from the University of Ottawa.

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. He is a member of APJD - a project of the World Press Photo Foundation and Everyday Africa.
